27 East End Leaders Endorse Lee Zeldin for Re-Election

PATCHOGUE, NY – The Zeldin for Congress campaign today announced the endorsement of 27 East End elected officials. Today’s announcement follows this week’s 8 Brookhaven elected officials, 14 state and Suffolk County-level elected leader endorsements, and 15 Smithtown and Islip leaders for Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1).


“Congressman Lee Zeldin continues to support our community on many fronts,” said Yvette Aguiar, Riverhead Town Supervisor. “He has successfully advocated for Riverhead at the Federal level. Some of our future projects are being championed by his office. He is a responsive hands-on Congressman who is an effective leader.”


“Congressman Zeldin is approachable and always helpful. Southold Town has concerns with Hashamomuck Cove. The constituents reached out to Congressman Zeldin, who responded right away and acted on the issue,” said Jill Doherty, Southold Town Councilwoman. “Congressman Zeldin got the congressional approvals to have the Army Corps of Engineers step in. Congressman Lee Zeldin is the person we need to represent us!”


“Lee has been great working with local government. He was instrumental in setting up a meeting for Shelter Island with the Army Corps of Engineers to help us address erosion on Reel Point and then followed up continually to keep us on their radar,” said Amber Brach-Williams, Shelter Island Town Councilwoman. “During the Coronavirus emergency order, he has attended weekly East End Supervisors and Mayors calls to exchange information about our needs and concerns and what help was available.”


“It is my distinct honor to support Lee Zeldin for re-election to Congress in November. Lee has proven to be an outstanding representative with more courage, integrity and character than any candidate out there,” said Theresa Kiernan, Southampton Receiver of Taxes. “I am truly blessed to call Lee Zeldin a friend and can think of no other person that I would rather have representing all of us in CD 1.”
