Acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas has received the endorsement of North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth in seeking the Democratic nomination for November’s election.

In a statement issued Tuesday by Singas’ campaign, Bosworth said Singas “has already proven that she is an outstanding acting D.A. and law enforcement leader for our community.”

“I am confident she will continue to be the tough and aggressive district attorney Nassau County needs to protect our communities and families,” said Bosworth, a Democrat. “I am proud to give her my endorsement and I look forward to working together with her on issues of importance to our town and county.”

Singas, of Manhasset, was the chief assistant D.A. under U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice, assuming the acting district attorney role when Rice was sworn into Congress.

Singas is facing Michael A. Scotto in a September 10 primary to decide the party nomination.

In a statement, Singas said Bosworth is “a truly exceptional leader of our community,” and that she was honored to receive the supervisor’s endorsement.

“Over her distinguished career in public service, Supervisor Bosworth has been a tireless advocate for her constituents,” Singas said. “She understands the importance of electing a district attorney with extensive experience in the courtroom and the criminal justice system. I look forward to working with her to keep Nassau’s families and neighborhoods safe.”

Singas and Bosworth in May received the backing of the Nassau County Democratic Committee.
