Homeless Sex Offender Proposal
Since being elected in March 2001, I have been privileged to serve the residents of Suffolk County’s Eighth Legislative District. It has been an honor to serve as Presiding Officer of the Legislature for the last four years.
During my tenure, I have met so many good people who share my enthusiasm for improving the communities that we live in. I am very proud to be part of the Suffolk County Legislature and I am committed to doing everything within my power as a legislator to help my constituents in any way possible.
I have worked hard to develop a reputation for constituent friendly office, one that provides answers for our residents. Together, I firmly believe that we are making the Eighth Legislative District the best place to live in Suffolk County.
