A Message from Don:

Thank you, Town of Hempstead!

I am humbled by the overwhelming support I received at the polls on November 8, 2011.  To once again be our residents' choice for Receiver of Taxes is truly an honor.

Today, we begin anew.  I am back to work doing the people's business, thanks to all of you.  

With gratitude,
