It is my honor to serve as Legislator for the Second Legislative District of Suffolk County. Our district is unlike any other. Extending from Montauk to East Moriches, we are the largest geographically and have the highest cost of living. This places a difficult burden on our many seniors and working families. With each passing year, changes threaten our cherished small town way of life and our fragile environment.


Both as East Hampton Town Supervisor, and as your representative in Suffolk County government, I have worked hard to find responsible solutions to our area’s many challenges. In that effort, I have sponsored numerous initiatives aimed at:

  • Improving our health
  • Protecting our environment
  • Safeguarding our children
  • Relieving traffic congestion
  • Cutting taxes
As always, my staff and I are here to assist you in answering any questions about county government, its programs, and anything else that may be important to a constituent. Please feel free to stop by my office on Washington Street in Sag Harbor or call me anytime at (631) 852-8400.







Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman (I-Montauk) announces extended office hours on weekends his legislative district office will be open on Saturdays from 9:00am to 1:00pm. The intention of the extended office hours is to have a legislative aide assist constituents with county issues on Saturdays. It is a hardship for many constituents who work Monday through Friday that cannot take time off from work that need assistance from their representative in Suffolk County government.

June 20, 2015 is “Discover Suffolk County Parks Day” with a rain date of June 21, 2015. This measure is designed to entice Suffolk County residents and visitors to discover the beautiful parks and recreational resources that Suffolk County Parks have to offer.

This resolution introduced by Legislator Jay Schneiderman will allow all visitors to pay the discounted green key card rate at all County Parks.  Generally at life-guard supervised beach parks, green key cardholders pay $8 while non-green key cardholders pay $15; and at inland parks green key cardholders pay $6 while non-green key cardholders pay $13.

“In these challenging economic times, many county residents are staying on Long Island instead of vacationing elsewhere during the summer months,” said Legislator Schneiderman. “This discounted admission fee will allow visitors the opportunity to explore these opportunities close to home.”

While visiting the parks, residents are encouraged to inquire about the Suffolk County Parks Green Key card which would allow them to continue to receive discounted rates for parking and other activities year round.   Additional discounts are available for Seniors, Veterans, Volunteer Firefighters and Ambulance Personnel, and Active Military Personnel.  You can also visit the Suffolk County Parks website for further information on the County’s Park system and a list of the County Parks .
