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.
