Acting Nassau County, New York District Attorney Madeline Singas won the Democratic Primary.
The Greek-American lawyer won by a landslide, with 73% of the votes. As Singas stated, "I want to thank my friends, family and all the volunteers who knocked on doors, burned up the phone lines and worked tirelessly to reach out to voters. This victory would never have been possible without your passion, your enthusiasm and your dedication. Thank you all so much."
Singas has devoted her career to keeping Nassau's communities safe and has worked over two decades prosecuting violent crime. The mother of twins has enforced pioneering programs to combat domestic violence, gun violence, gangs, prescription drug abuse afflicting Long Island, and on many other issues.
The Greek-American lawyer grew up in Astoria and attended Bronx High School of Science, completed her undergraduate studies at Columbia University, and obtained her law degree from Fordham University Law School.
