PATCHOGUE, NY – The Zeldin for Congress campaign today announced the endorsement of 15 Smithtown and Islip elected officials. Today’s announcement follows this week’s 8 Brookhaven elected officials and 14 state and Suffolk County-level elected leader endorsements for Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1).
“Born and raised right here on Long Island, Lee Zeldin is a man whose life revolves around service,” said Ed Wehrheim, Smithtown Town Supervisor. “He served our country in the Army, served our state in the State Senate, and now continues to serve our district in Washington. I look forward to his continued service after his victory in November.”
“It is an honor to endorse Congressman Lee Zeldin for re-election this November. Lee and I share a common goal of making our community the best it can be for our residents,” said Lisa M. Inzerillo, Smithtown Town Councilwoman. “I know that Lee wakes up each morning with the goal of keeping our community a safe place for our children to grow-up in, and I look forward to continuing to work with him to do that.”
“I am proud to endorse Congressman Lee Zeldin for re-election in November. He stood up for small businesses during the pandemic, fighting to provide much-needed funding for the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program and Disaster Loan Program, and he secured more than 1.2 million items of PPE for healthcare workers and other individuals fighting on the front lines all across Long Island,” said Angie Carpenter, Islip Town Supervisor. “Beyond that, we are most appreciative of the Congressman’s commitment to Islip’s LI MacArthur airport.”
“As a fellow serviceman and father, I know the toughness and resolve Lee takes with him to Washington,” said John C. Cochrane, Islip Town Councilman. “This has been apparent over the last six years, and even more so over the last few months as he delivered for our small businesses, frontline workers and hardworking families. We are fortunate to have him fighting for us.”
