North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Tax Receiver Charles Berman was re-elected on November 3 to another four-year term with 18,947 votes, or a 65% margin of victory over his opponent.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve the Town’s residents with excellent customer service, prompt answers to their questions and information on lowering their tax payments,” said Berman. “My office strives to make the tax-payment process as convenient as possible. As I prepare to begin my second full term, I look forward to working together with Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town’s Council members, as we continue to make the Town of North Hempstead one of the best places to live.”
