March 4, 2020

Welcome to the LI Law Podcast.  We feature legal issues and developments which affect Long Island residents and business owners.  The podcast focuses on Long Island law topics and includes greater New York court and legislative happenings.  If you are one of the approximate 8 million residents of Long Island (Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Kings counties), or want to enjoy all law-related matters on Long Island, this podcast is for you!

Our guest on this 44th episode is Donald X. Clavin, Supervisor of the Town of Hempstead, the largest township in the United States.  The Town of Hempstead employs nearly 2,000 people in 24 departments and provides high quality programs and services to the town’s nearly 770,000 residents.

Supervisor Clavin previously served 18 years as the town’s Receiver of Taxes – not the greatest job title, he admits – but something in which he took great pride. As Tax Receiver, Don was a leader in the fight against Nassau County’s broken assessment system, which had resulted in higher property taxes for local homeowners. He helped thousands of taxpayers by hosting several hundred taxpayer forums to educate residents on how to lower their taxes through exemptions and challenging their property tax assessments.   Don is a lifelong resident of the Town of Hempstead, where he has made a home with his wife and three children.
