Nassau County's Acting DA Madeline Singas Makes Headlines

  • Written by 

Nassau County, New York's recently appointed District Attorney Madeline Singas has been in the news recently, with interviews in the Long Island Herald and Newsday.

Singas was featured in articles with Newsday titled, "Nassau's Acting DA: 'I know the office'" and "Singas gets fundraising jump on potential DA opponents", among others. The articles can be accessed at: http://www.newsday.com.

New Greek TV featured the Greek-American District Attorney as one of our subjects for "Greek of the Week" last month. Singas was sworn in to her new post Tuesday, January 6th.

The 48-year-old Manhasset resident stated after taking the oath of office, "I came from very humble beginnings...My parents could not speak English...they came as immigrants to this country and today I am here to show that the American dream is alive and well in Nassau County in 2015."

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.
