Village Administrator John Giordano

 

John Giordano was raised in Lynbrook and graduated from Lynbrook High School in 1974. John earned a B.S. in Business Administration at Adelphi University and went on to get his Masters of Public Administration at Baruch College in New York, NY. In 1980 he began working for the Village of Lynbrook as the Deputy Village Clerk. After four years, he transferred to the Village of Lake Success as the Village Administrator, increasing his responsibilities to include the daily management of village departments, including Police, Parks, Public Works, Justice Court, Building, Recreation, Sanitation, and the preparation of annual budgets, Board agendas and implementation of Board resolutions. He served as a Planning Committee member of the Hofstra University Business Development Center for the Nassau County Operation Downtown program and Finance Committee member for the Nassau County Village Officials Association. He served as moderator for various municipal seminars for the New York Conference of Mayors. As a founding board member of the Long Island Municipal Cooperative Purchasing Group, he was credited for mobilizing the coop (for the first time) to make emergency purchases for Long Island Fire Departments to replenish supplies used on 9/11.

Mr. Giordano was named “Clerk of the Year” by the New York State Association of City and Village Clerks and is the recipient of numerous awards: the Nassau Citizens Budget Committee’s “Good Government Award-Capital Planning and Budget”, NY Conference of Mayors’ “Main Street Award,” and the Nassau County Village Officials Association’s “Downtown Alive and Best Practices in Village Government” award. He was also honored by the State Comptroller for authoring the statewide “Registered Municipal Clerk” certification program.

With over 35 years’ experience in working with municipalities, Mr. Giordano has accumulated affiliations with many prestigious organizations such as the NY Government Finance Officers Association, Nassau County Village Officials Association, NY Planning Federation and the State Comptroller’s “Local Officials Advisory Team”. Mr. Giordano has also held office as former President of the New York State Association of City and Village Clerks and as former President of the Long Island Village Clerks and Treasurers Association. He has also earned The “Certified Municipal Clerk “designation from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. He further elevated his career achievements with an appointment to Farmingdale, a larger village in Nassau County, as their Clerk Treasurer where he was responsible for the daily operations and supervision of their departments, and received Congressional recognition for preparing 12 consecutive no tax increase Budgets, a State record.

Returning full circle to Lynbrook as a Grant Consultant, and then as Village Administrator, he used his seasoned skills to obtain the coveted “All American City “ finalist award and AA+ Bond Rating upgrade from Standard and Poor’s, the highest the Village has earned. He previously also served as a consultant to 11 other Long Island municipalities and Chambers of Commerce on downtown revitalization, grants and finance, and is credited for obtaining Lynbrook’s grant funds to improve Atlantic Avenues Business District, Sidewalk Clock, and other streetscape projects. John’s deep roots in Lynbrook extend from his great grandparents who settled here in 1910 on Scranton Avenue with their 12 children. He can be reached at jgiordano@lynbrookvillage.com.
