Bill McClean seeks the seat being vacated by Cindy Cardinal due to her responsibilities as chief of staff for the Town of North Hempstead.
Charles Jettmar, who has been serving as interim trustee in the post formerly held by Heidi McNamara, now seeks to win the seat on his own. Both candidates have young families that utilize the library.
Jettmar is a senior director of capital projects for the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, and vice president of the North Strathmore Civic Association. He and his wife, Lisa, have lived in Manhasset with their two boys since 2009. “Serving on the Board is a way for me to give back to an organization that gives so much to my family and the community at-large,” he says.
McClean has been developing and investing in digital media businesses for major companies such as AOL, Viacom and currently Verizon. He and his wife, Maureen, and two children moved to Manhasset two years ago. “I look forward to working with my fellow trustees, adding my deep experience transforming traditional media businesses to further assist with our library’s challenges,” he says.
The Manhasset Library annual budget vote and trustee election will be held in the Community Room of the Library on Wednesday, April 9 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
