Suffolk County Veterans Discount Program

Suffolk County is home to numerous brave men and women who have honorably served our country in the Armed Forces. Their commitment to upholding and defending the principles our nation is founded upon deserves the highest degree of respect and gratitude. That is why I am asking Suffolk County business owners to join me in giving something back to those who have given us so much.

Would you consider offering Veterans a small discount and signing up to be part of the Suffolk County Veterans Discount Program? By participating in this program, your business name will be displayed on the Suffolk County website, with your address and discount specifications. The nature of the discount that each individual business is willing to provide is at your discretion.

Contact my office for more information (631) 854-4500.

Mentoring Provides Guidance for Students throughout the School Year!
 
 

Recently students involved in the Mentoring Program sponsored by Suffolk County Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D. visited the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for their end of the year field trip. The mentors and mentees were given a tour of the grounds and an inside look into where some of science’s most crucial DNA discoveries have been found.

Each week, the group meets at the Tri-CYA to connect with each other while working through challenges the mentees face throughout the week. They are given the opportunity to celebrate their successes, express concerns and their frustrations and give, as well as receive, support from their peers and caring mentors.

Legislators Call on Albany to Put an End to Conversion “Therapy”
 
 

Legislator Spencer was joined by his colleagues Legislators Calarco, Fleming, Hahn and Lindsay along with David Kilnmick, CEO of the LGBT Network, to urge the NYS Senate Leadership to act now and allow Senate Bill 121 to the floor for a vote to ban the harmful practice of conversion "therapy."

“This practice is a relic of the dark days when homosexuality was considered a mental illness and it perpetuates the damaging lie that sexuality is a condition that needs to be treated. New York should be a leader on the issue and put an end to this pseudoscience that has harmful lasting impacts on LGBT youth.” stated Legislator William R. Spencer M.D. “The medical community stands in opposition of these practices as they are damaging and unethical; it’s about time that our laws follow suit.” Numerous organizations have issued statements against sexual orientation and gender identity conversion efforts including, the American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the American Counseling Association, the National Association of Social Workers, the American School Counselor Association, and the National Association of School Psychologists.
