A Special Conversation with Judi Bosworth ’68:
From NYC Public School Teacher to
Town Supervisor

 

Judi Bosworth, '68, took office in 2014, as the 37th Supervisor of the Town of North Hempstead, following six years with the Nassau County Legislature as the representative for the 10th District and 16 years as a trustee of the Great Neck School District Board of Education. She was reelected to her third two-year term in November 2017.

Throughout her tenure she has shown a strong commitment to fiscally conservative budgeting that stays under the state-mandated tax cap, by reducing debt and saving taxpayer dollars whenever possible. This has resulted in the town’s first-ever Triple-A bond rating by Moody’s for the past three years, the highest bond rating that a municipality can obtain. Judi also has implemented ethics and procurement reforms.

During her career in public office, Judi has been committed to safeguarding the environment. In particular, she has been a staunch advocate of protecting the area’s waterways, aquifers, and drinking water, including as an outspoken opponent of New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection’s controversial plan to reopen the Jamaica Wells, which would extract up to 68 million gallons of water per day.

The hallmark of Judi’s administration has been delivering outstanding constituent services to each and every resident. For instance, she and the town’s Veterans Advisory Committee secured local services for veterans. She created the Disability Advisory Committee, which has provided the town with valuable input on programs for residents with disabilities. The town has extended its Project Independence Taxi Ride program to include free or discounted taxi rides to residents with disabilities, and it has expanded the Town’s CARE program for adult children with disabilities. Judi supports the national “Not In Our Town” initiative that has inspired hundreds of communities across the country and around the world to take action against messages of hate and prejudice.

Under Judi’s leadership, the town is revisioning and redesigning the 90-acre North Hempstead Beach Park to provide a diverse range of cultural and recreational activities. In addition, it is creating an all-encompassing cultural master plan that will highlight the arts, culture, restaurants, and commerce of North Hempstead and the 31 villages within its borders.
