Legislator Bontempi is extremely excited to begin applying her knowledge and skillsets to protecting the environment, stimulating the economy, cutting excessive red tape and making improvements to public safety. The 18th District is located entirely within the Town of Huntington and is one of the most diverse areas in Suffolk County in terms of both demographics and local history.

As a legislator, I believe it is incumbent on me to closely listen to the residents and translate their priorities into action,” said Bontempi. “We are living in one of the most difficult times in history, and the last thing that residents need is a non-responsive government. Therefore, constant interaction with the community and restoring faith in government will be significant components of my plans.”
