On September 15, Ed Romaine, Supervisor, Town of Brookhaven, will discuss “The Future of Suffolk” at LIMBA (Long Island Metro Business Action). This event will take place at the Candlelight Diner, 56 Veterans Memorial Highway in Commack, starting at 8:30 a.m.
Mr. Romaine, the Republican/Conservative candidate for Suffolk County Executive, has served as Brookhaven’s Town Supervisor since 2012. Under his leadership, the Town has maintained a AAA bond rating from Wall Street ratings agencies for the past decade, reduced Town debt and held the line on property taxes to spur economic development and make Brookhaven more affordable.
Mr. Romaine has earned a reputation for providing cost-effective government through innovation and technology. He is held in high regard by the environmental community, having authored Suffolk’s Clean Water Act and spearheading legislation to protect Carmans River.
As Supervisor, he has worked to maintain Brookhaven’s suburban quality of life by aggressively prosecuting problem landlords and eliminating hundreds of zombie homes. He has hired more public safety officers to help secure Brookhaven communities and has worked to ensure that local government best serves all of the Town residents.
Prior to being elected Town Supervisor, Mr. Romaine served in the county Legislature and as Suffolk County Clerk, where his pioneering approach to government technology led to increased productivity and improved access to official records. Because of this, he was recognized as New York State County Clerk of the Year.
