Kevan Abrahams, Democratic leader of the Nassau County Legislature, announced Friday he will not seek reelection after serving more than 20 years as a lawmaker.
Statement from Minority Leader Abrahams “After 22 years of serving the First Legislative District and the residents of Nassau County, I have decided to not seek re-election,” Nassau County Legislature Minority Leader Kevan M. Abrahams (D – Freeport) said. “It has been a great privilege and an honor to serve my constituency and advocate for change. I am grateful to all my colleagues for their support throughout the years and to my constituents for allowing me to continue to represent them for over two decades.”
Abrahams in 2002 became the youngest member ever elected to the county legislature, and in 2011 became the chamber’s first Black caucus leader in the legislature’s history.
