Suffolk County Legislature (18th LD)

Dr. Eve Meltzer-Krief

There is no physician currently in the Legislature, and I would be an effective advocate to bring needed change to our communities. We must secure funding for clean water infrastructure to keep our drinking water safe and our bays and waterways clean. We must address the mental health crisis impacting so many of our children. We must fight for more affordability, because no family should be choosing between food on their table or heat in their home. So many of the decisions made by elected officials impact the health and well-being of our communities. I want to be a voice in the room for children and families when those decisions are made. read more »

Suffolk County Executive

Dave Calone was born and raised in Suffolk County. His mom is a retired public school teacher and his dad a retired engineer. Because of their hard work, the support of his teachers in the Mt. Sinai and Port Jefferson school districts, and the help of his community, Dave received a great education that enabled his career in both law and business. After studying economics in college, followed by law school, Dave started his career as a federal prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice. He prosecuted corporate fraud by companies in the oil and gas industry and by companies targeting military families. Dave also helped prosecute an al-Qaeda terrorist for his role in the 9/11 attacks. Later, Dave became a New York State Special Assistant Attorney General, where he helped negotiate what was—at the time—the largest health care fraud recovery for taxpayers in the state’s history. For the past 16 years, Dave has pursued innovation and entrepreneurship by working to start and build companies throughout the country, including right here on Long Island. One of the companies that he co-founded has expanded health care access and affordability, while being recognized four times by Inc. Magazine as among the fastest growing companies in the United States. Dave initiated the Long Island Emerging Technologies Fund to help launch ten job-creating companies based on technology developed by Long Island’s research laboratories.  read more »

Huntington Town Council

Jennifer Hebert

I've spent my professional career as an educator and administrator, working as a public school teacher, a nursery school director and currently as the program director of Kerber's Farm School, located in Huntington. Since I took over as director of the school, I've built the program to include innovative classes, field trips for local school districts and scout programs, internship opportunities, and a weekly work-study program for life-skills students. I served nine years on the Huntington School Board, the last two years as the president. I enjoyed working collaboratively with my fellow trustees, and became known as a team player and consensus builder. I was an accessible resource for the district families, staff and community members. My time on the board also gave me insight into the issues that matter to the community. Given the opportunity to represent Huntington as a council member, I'll be ready to get to work on day one. It would be a great honor to represent the Huntington community.  read more »

2024 Elections


President of the United States

Joseph R. Biden

"We are in a battle for the soul of America. It’s time to remember who we are. We’re Americans: tough and resilient. We choose hope over fear. Science over fiction. Truth over lies. And unity over division. We treat each other with dignity, we leave nobody behind, and we give hate no safe harbor. We are the United States of America. And together, there is not a single thing we cannot do." Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. is born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the son of Catherine Eugenia Finnegan Biden and Joseph Robinette Biden, Sr., and the first of four children. When Joe is 10, the Biden family moves to Claymont, Delaware, to look for better work. It becomes the state Joe calls home. Joe enrolls at the University of Delaware, where he double majors in history and political science. He goes on to Syracuse University, where he earns his law degree. At age 29, Joe becomes one of the youngest people ever elected to the United States Senate. Weeks later, tragedy strikes the Biden family when Neilia and Naomi are killed and Hunter and Beau are critically injured in an auto accident. read more »

Vice President of the United States

Kamala Harris

The first Black and Indian American woman to represent California in the United States Senate, Kamala Harris grew up believing in the promise of America and fighting to make sure that promise is fulfilled for all Americans. Kamala’s father immigrated to the U.S. from Jamaica to study economics and her mother immigrated from India. Kamala’s mother told her growing up “Don’t sit around and complain about things, do something,” which is what drives Kamala every single day. Kamala started fighting for working families in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, where she focused on prosecuting child sexual assault cases. From there, she became the first Black woman elected as San Francisco’s District Attorney. In this position, she started a program to provide first-time drug offenders second chances with the opportunity to earn a high school degree and find a job. read more »
