The Suffolk County Supervisors' Association has selected Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst as its new chair and Islip Town Supervisor Tom Croci was selected as vice chair at its meeting on Monday, September 10, 2012. Throne-Holst replaces Mark Lesko, the outgoing Supervisor of Brookhaven Town.

According to Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, "When we revived this organization last year we committed to addressing three priority areas; water quality protection, reducing health care costs, and achieving cost savings through shared services. These topics remain the key focus of our organization, and I am pleased to help lead the way in bringing policy makers and experts to the table to develop regional strategies to help address these issues."

"Together the Suffolk County Supervisors represent nearly 1.5 million people and I was proud to work with my fellow Supervisors on issues of importance to all of our residents. I know that Supervisor Throne-Holst and Supervisor Croci will be strong advocates for the ten towns in Suffolk County," said Supervisor Mark Lesko. "I am please to accept this new role as vice chair of this important organization which has served as a tremendous resource to me in governing Islip. My colleagues to the east and west, and from both sides of the aisle, have provided me with incredible perspective through the SCSA---our consistent sharing of ideas and best practices will only improve our own Towns and Suffolk as a region."

To Whom It May Concern: Riverhead Town Supervisor has warned the public NOT to walk alone at night in "downtown" Riverhead yet from 0550-0700 Thursday March 7,2013 not one police unit was observed from Reeves Park,Riverhead to Main Street and back. Efforts to have the Sheriff Department,police officers by definition, to patrol County roads within the confines of east end towns to alleviate east pd personnel shortages has been ignored by the Suffolk County Executive's office and the Legislature Public Safety Committee. East End taxpayers are being shortchanged on Public Safety and suggestions to improve the issue have been shelved. There is no Charter issue as many have used as an excuse to prohibit the Suffolk County PD Highway Patrol to patrol County roads on the east end its time this matter be addressed!
