Clavin captured 66.32 percent of the total vote against the non-incumbent, Robinson.
"The residents of our town deserve responsive and hardworking government that shows respect and compassion during difficult economic times," Clavin told Patch. "I have been proud to work with Supervisor Kate Murray and all of the members of the town board to deliver a tax freeze budget that shows the highest regard for residents while preserving a superlative quality of life experience for neighbors across America's largest township. Thank you to all of those who voted in Tuesday's election."
Clavin has been receiver of taxes since 2001.
Prior to his work with the town, Clavin gained experience in local government while working in the Office of the Nassau County Attorney as deputy county attorney. In the county attorney's office, Clavin was responsible for defending various agencies of government ranging from the Department of General Services to the Nassau County Police Department.
After leaving the county attorney's office, he entered the private sector and went on to defend various corporations ranging from Home Depot to General Motors.Candidates Votes % Precincts Reported Clavin 69,559 66.32 Robinson 35,288 33.65
