Where Long Island goes, so goes New York. Two years ago, Democrats picked up several Long Island seats in the state Senate, which proved pivotal in giving the party full control of the state Legislature and ushered in a wave of progressive policymaking. This year, Republicans bounced back on Long Island, holding onto their House seats while proving more competitive in state legislative contests as well. City & State’s Long Island Power 100 reflects those shifting political winds, highlighting not only the most powerful political figures in Nassau and Suffolk counties – elected officials, government appointees, business and labor leaders, academics and advocates – but also how they stack up against each other in 2020.
