Suffolk County legislators serving the Half Hollow Hills area were recently sworn in to office.
Legis. Lou D’Amaro (D-Huntington Station) is beginning his fourth term in the County Legislature. He took the oath of office alongside fellow Huntington Legis. Steve Stern (D-Dix Hills), also beginning his fourth term, and the newly-elected William Spencer (D-Centerport) in a special ceremony administered by County Clerk Judith Pascale.
“I thank the fine, hard-working residents of the 17th district for electing me to another term as their Legislator,” said Legislator D’Amaro. “I have gotten to know so many of them during my past six years in office and it remains a privilege and an honor to represent them in County office. I look forward to continuing my service in this community and working collaboratively with Steve Stern and William Spencer as we face the many challenges ahead.”
Legis. Stern added, “I want to thank our community for its continued trust and I look forward to working with my neighbors, my colleagues and our new County Executive on important new initiatives to improve our local economy, protect our taxpayers and preserve our environment and our quality of life,” Legislator Stern said.
“I congratulate my colleagues Legislators D’Amaro and Stern as they begin their fourth terms. I am looking forward to working with them to ensure that Huntington residents receive their fair share of public safety, economic development and public health resources from the County,” stated Legislator Spencer. “In this difficult economy, my colleagues and I are going to need to work together on creative solutions to our challenging mutual issues.”
