State Assembly candidate Todd Kaminsky, joined by members of the Beach to Bay Central Council of Civic Associations and city officials, held a press conference at the shuttered Long Beach Medical Center on Tuesday, calling on the state Department of Health to authorize a free-standing emergency room at the site and reminding attendees that the barrier island has been without one for almost 700 days.

More than 100 supporters attended the opening of Assembly candidate Todd Kaminsky’s campaign office headquarters on Sunday, and filled the sidewalk in front of the Long Beach storefront for a rally.

Kaminsky, a community advocate and former award-winning federal prosecutor, is running to succeed Assm. Harvey Weisenberg in the 20th District. Weisenberg, who has endorsed Kaminsky, is retiring after his term runs out at the end of this year.

Kaminsky, a Long Beach resident and native, is basing his headquarters on Park Avenue, nearby the Long Beach LIRR train station.

This November, voters on the South Shore of Long Island will elect their first new Assemblymember in a quarter-century, replacing Harvey Weisenberg, who is retiring after having represented the 20th District since 1989. In that race—the southwestern corner of Nassau County, including Long Beach, Oceanside, and the Five Towns—LaborPress strongly endorses former federal prosecutor Todd Kaminsky, who will be running on the Democratic and Working Families party lines this November.

Kaminsky, 36, already has a long and remarkable record of public service.
