8 Local Brookhaven Leaders Endorse Congressman Lee Zeldin for Re-Election

PATCHOGUE, NY – The Zeldin for Congress campaign today announced the endorsement of 8 Brookhaven elected officials. This comes on the heels of yesterday’s announcement of 14 state and Suffolk County-level elected leader endorsements.

“I have known Lee Zeldin since he first ran for the United States Congress. I know how hard he works to deliver for all his constituents,” said Ed Romaine, Town Supervisor. “Whether it is working to keep our waterways clean or protecting our beaches or securing funding for needed infrastructure projects, Lee is there for us. I am proud to support his re-election.”

“Congressman Zeldin was crucial in securing funding to help the Town of Brookhaven repair the damage caused to our north shore by Superstorm Sandy. He has consistently demonstrated his commitment and ability to get things done for the Town of Brookhaven, and I strongly endorse his re-election,” said Jane Bonner, 3rd Council District.

“Lee is a longtime friend and a strong advocate for our community. Over the years, I have personally witnessed his resolve to fight for the Town of Brookhaven and all Long Islanders, first in Albany and now in Washington,” said Kevin Lavalle, 3rd Council District. “We are lucky to have him representing us in Congress, and I proudly endorse him for re-election.”

“I am proud to endorse Lee Zeldin for re-election to Congress. Over the last six years, he has worked tirelessly to bring federal resources to the Town of Brookhaven,” said Neil Foley, 5th Council District. “He has helped us improve our local environment through projects like the intracoastal waterway dredge, which is a boon for our local tourism, maritime industries and our way of life.”

“Lee Zeldin’s ability to deliver 2 billion dollars for Brookhaven National Laboratory is a regionally significant victory for our area,” said Dan Panico, 6th Council District. “His stewardship on Plum Island preservation has been exemplary. He’s never forgotten where he has come from and, as a fellow William Floyd High School graduate, he is always willing to help our area.”
