Brooke Lupinacci's Downtown Campaign Launch
By Niall Fitzgerald
Brooke Lupinacci officially kicked-off her campaign for Huntington Town Board this week with a springtime gathering with over 150 people at the Paramount theater in downtown Huntington.
Lupinacci is a former assistant District Attorney and Huntington native, who currently serves as the Labor Commissioner of the Town of Huntington. Her background in crime fighting and administration – and her deep roots in the community – make her uniquely capable to serve on the Town Board.
"I will work to deliver the highest quality of services for residents, protect our suburban quality of life, and safeguard our waterways and environment," stated Lupinacci.
There are two open seats on the Town Board being selected this year. Incumbent Board members Eugene Cook (R ) and Joan Cergol (D ) both chose to retire this year rather than try to seek re-election.
"I have dedicated my life to protecting our community," stated Lupinacci. "Now I am running for Town Board to protect our quality of life."
Lupinacci is the Republican nominee, and was joined at the Paramount by her running mate, Theresa Mari, an attorney with her own law firm. They are opposed by Democrats Don McKay and Jen Hebert.
Also running this year are Town Clerk Andrew Raia, a Republican, who is running for re-election; and the Town Receiver of Taxes Jillian Guthman, a Democrat, who is being opposed by Republican Pam Valastegui.
