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.

Our office has put together the enclosed “Survival Kit” for people in need of assistance in these tough economic times. It is geared towards the person who normally does not
ask for help and might not know where to turn in order to receive it.

Greenlawn Residents Shed the Meds
Legislator Spencer recently partnered with the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office for a Shed the Meds pharmaceutical take-back event at Paumanack Village in Greenlawn. Collectively, 2 boxes filled with medications were collected, which will now stay out of the hands of children, addicts, and our ground water. From left to right: Mary D’Agostino, Service Coordinator at Paumanack Village; Deputy Sheriff De Sena; Ruth Ann Knoeller, Resident; Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D.; and Deputy Sheriff McGovern.
If you missed the event, but still want to properly dispose of unused medications, you can safely and securely drop off unwanted or expired medications at your local Police Precinct, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For information about upcoming Shed the Meds opportunities, call 631-852-3436.
4th Annual Women’s Health & Information Fair a Great Success!
Suffolk County Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D. recently hosted his 4th Annual Women’s Health & Information Fair on Thursday, May 12th in conjunction with National Women’s Health Week. The Fair, designed for women from adolescents to seniors and all of those in-between, featured representatives from more than 30 not-for-profit and government agencies who provide assistance and guidance with issues relating to: health, safety, self-esteem, legal matters, business, success, housing, mental health, special needs and much more.
“This event is so important for the women we love who often get caught up in the day to day business and needs of others that they forget to take time for themselves. Thank you to the agencies that provided important resources, expertise, and guidance and thank you to the residents who came and took advantage of this opportunity. I’m confident that all who attended left with valuable information that will make a difference in their life and the lives of their loved ones.” stated Legislator Spencer.
