RESOLVE TO BE TOBACCO FREE

Suffolk County Health Commissioner Dr. James Tomarken encourages residents who use tobacco to obtain help in breaking their addiction by signing up for Suffolk County’s “Learn to Be …Tobacco Free” program. The program offers assistance with planning, support, counseling and medication if warranted.

“We know more than ever about what works and what doesn't,” said Dr. Tomarken. “Studies have shown that smokers who try to quit smoking using a combination of behavioral support and medicine are three times more likely to be successful than those who try to stop smoking without support.”

The classes are free to Suffolk County residents, though there is a nominal fee for medication for medically eligible participants. Class will be held as follows:

GROUNDWATER QUALITY IN THE VICINITY OF THE AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE IN WESTHAMPTON

On September 12, 2016, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) has declared the New York State Air National Guard Base at Gabreski Airport a Class 2 Superfund Site. With this designation, NYSDEC has identified the U.S. Department of Defense, which oversees the site’s operations, as the potentially responsible party for perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) contamination detected in nearby groundwater supplies.

In a letter to the airport director, NYSDEC leadership stated that it had directed the U.S. Department of Defense to finance connection to public water any homes with private wells that have been or may be impacted by contamination.

I am deeply grateful that the voters of the Second District have honored me with the opportunity to serve our community in the Suffolk County Legislature, representing voters from Montauk to East Moriches, and Shelter Island. Our district is unlike any other; we are the largest geographically and have the highest cost of living. This places a difficult burden on our many seniors, working families and young adults. It is my goal to ensure that the unique needs of the Second Legislative District are met.

EngageRotator
 

I recently completed five years of service as Councilwoman in the Town of Southampton.  I was honored to serve and I’m proud of what we accomplished.  On the Town Council, I focused my efforts on three areas that are critical to the East End:   providing economic opportunity, defending the environment, and keeping your government accountable to you.  I’m excited to carry these efforts forward in my service on the Suffolk County Legislature.  Serving in County government offers the opportunity for regional solutions that touch multiple towns to support and improve our community.  I will continue to look for opportunities to build our economy for the benefit of the entire community, to fight hard to protect our precious and fragile natural resources, and to draw on my experience as a fraud prosecutor to ensure that government handles your hard-earned tax dollars prudently.

My priorities include the following:

*   Improving water quality and protecting our environment  
*   Continuing to preserve farmland and open space
*   Ensuring government accountability
*   Promoting economic growth  
*   Protecting the health and welfare of Suffolk County residents

My staff and I are here to assist you in answering any questions about county government and its programs, and providing guidance and support to ensure that your government works for you. Please feel free to stop by my office at 75 Washington Street in Sag Harbor or call me anytime at (631) 852-8400.
