The Zeldin for Congress campaign announced this week that Congressman Lee Zeldin has received 18 endorsements from elected officials in the five East End towns of the First Congressional District of New York.
“I am humbled and grateful for these endorsements from our hard-working East End elected officials,” said Mr. Zeldin in a press release issued by his campaign. “It has been an honor to represent an area as vibrant and unique as our Congressional District. With the support of these great elected officials from Riverhead, East Hampton, Shelter Island, Southold and Southampton, we can build upon our past wins together for our shared constituents and get even greater victories across the finish line moving forward.”
“Southampton needs strong representation in Washington, and I am delighted to lend Lee Zeldin my support for a third term in Congress. He truly listens to his constituents and has been active in seeking to improve Long Island by protecting our environment, improving our safety and security, and helping grow our economy. Rep. Zeldin is not one to make promises on which he can’t deliver. He is a man of his word who truly cares about his district. I urge the people of NY-1 to join me in re-electing a veteran who has made public service his top priority,” stated Southampton Councilwoman Christine Scalera.
“I am honored to endorse Congressman Lee Zeldin for re-election. Lee has been a zealous advocate on behalf of Southold Town residents. He fights for us and for the issues that are most important to us. As a veteran and family man, his introduction and passage into law of the Adult Day Health Care bill for disabled veterans ensures that our heroes receive the care and assistance they need. Lee Zeldin is a strong leader, laser focused on our local priorities, and the right man to serve our district,” said Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell.
Other elected officials to endorse Mr. Zeldin include Southold Deputy Supervisor William Ruland, Southold Councilman Bob Ghosio, Southold Councilwoman Jill Doherty, Southold Councilman James Dinizio Jr., Southampton Town Clerk Sundy Schermeyer, Southampton Receiver of Taxes Theresa Kiernan, Riverhead Councilman James Wooten, Riverhead Councilwoman Jodi Giglio, Riverhead Councilman Timothy Hubbard, Shelter Island Supervisor Gary Gerth, Shelter Island Councilman Paul Shepherd, Shelter Island Councilwoman Amber Brach-Williams, Southold Town Assessor Charles Sanders, Southold Highway Superintendent Vinny Orlando, Southold Town Assessor Kevin Webster and Southold Town Clerk Elizabeth Neville.
