Election Season Kicks Off With Primary Vote

Laura Curran and George Maragos

Candidates are ratcheting up their campaign efforts across the country and Long Island is no different—especially in the hotly contested County Executive race.

But before Election Day on Nov. 7, Nassau County voters headed to the polls on Tuesday, Sept. 12, to choose between Democratic challengers County Legislator Laura Curran and County Comptroller George Maragos. While election results were not available as of presstime, newcomer Curran had out-raised and gained more endorsements than Maragos.

The county’s comptroller since 2010, Maragos left the Republican Party last fall to become a Democrat, but was not chosen for the Democratic ticket—that honor went to Curran.
