Meet Candidates for Highway Superintendent

Assemblyman Daniel Losquadro and Councilwoman Kathleen Walsh will answer questions at Sound Beach Civic Association meeting

On March 5, a special election will be held for Town of Brookhaven Highway Superintendent. The Sound Beach Civic Association will be hosting a Meet the Candidates Night on Feb. 11, 7:30 PM, at the Sound Beach Firehouse and invite everyone to come and ask questions of the candidates for this position: Assemblyman Daniel Losquadro and Councilwoman Kathleen Walsh. Because so much of what happens in our area relates to Highway, on a local level this is a critical election.  For more information the Civic can be contacted at 744-6952.

I'm voting for Kathleen Walsh because she's better qualified. AShe's been at the Town for years and knows how to get things done But do you "gun enthusiasts" realize that Losquadro's stand on gun control has nothing to do with doing this job.

Read the article below.... http://millerplace-rockypoint.patch.com/articles/vietnam-vet-pushing-for-write-in-votes-in-town-highway-super-race And there's at least one more person who's attempting to throw his name into the ring: Michael DePaoli, a Vietnam veteran and a former director of emergency preparedness for Suffolk County, who is hoping to collect enough write-in votes to secure a win in the race. In a recent interview with Patch, DePaoli said while seeking write-in votes is an uphill battle, he believes it's important to give the voters a choice beyond the traditional political parties. He said he was dissatisfied when the town's most recent highway superintendent, John Rouse, ran unopposed in the 2011 election cycle.

Enough of the politics..gun control is not the issue here. We need someone who is qualified to run the highway department efficiently without party control. Isnt it a bit dumb to elect a person for this job? It should be a position that is open to any individual and not tied to politics. Town of Brookhaven needs a total revamp, including education, which is a whole other can of worms. Time to wake up people!

So a highway superintendent race comes down to gun control, wow, what a bunch of narrow minded, uneducated voters we have in this town.

We don't have a bunch of narrow minded, uneducated voters in this town, they are apparently all over this great country of ours. I would never judge a candidate just over a single issue such as gun control. But when a candidate "waffles" over a recent important issue it should be considered. I also feel this should be a privatized best candidate position instead of a politically voted on one!
