New York State Assembly Candidate Nicholas Deegan

Mattituck resident takes first stab at state assembly seat, opposing incumbent Dan Losquadro.

Name: Nicholas Deegan

Hometown: Mattituck

Party: Democrat

Bio: Deegan says he’s had an interest in community involvement since he was a teenager growing up on a farm in County Wicklow, Ireland. His father, Denis, was always a strong voice in local government, and Nick followed in his footsteps. Deegan, 62, ran and lost in 2011 on the Democratic ticket for Southold Town Councilman. He has served the North Fork community as a coach, crew member of the Mattituck Soccer Club and as a commissioner of the Mattituck Park District since 2007. A professional carpenter, Deegan said he became interested in running for park district commissioner when he witnessed the building of a storage facility on beachside land at Veterans Memorial Park in Mattituck in 2006.

Opponent: Incumbent Assemblyman Dan Losquadro

District: 1st Assembly District

Candidate Statement: As park district commissioner, Deegan said reduced taxes by 16 percent without cutting services to the park district. He said he believes he has proved himself to the community as someone who can get stuff done with efficiency. “I believe I have the leadership skills to bring us where we need to be,” he told Patch in 2011.

Polls are open Nov. 6 from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
