Campaign: HQ Opening; Tailgate Party

Huntington Democrats  will officially open its 2021 official campaign headquarters with a parking lot rally at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

“Our candidates have been working hard individually, and now it is time for all of us to come together to demonstrate, in as forceful a way as possible, what a great slate we have to maintain Democratic control of the Suffolk County Legislature and to bring good government back to Huntington Town Hall,” Democratic chair Frank P. Petrone said.

The rally will feature remarks from all of the Democratic candidates: Legislative candidates Susan Berland, Mark Cuthbertson and Tom Donnelly; Supervisor candidate Rebecca Sanin; Town Council candidates Jen Hebert and Joe Schramm; and Highway Superintendent Kevin Orelli.

Berland, Donnelly and Orelli and incumbents; Cuthbertson, a Town Council member, is running for an open legislative seat and Hebert and Schramm are running for two open Council seats. Also on the Democratic ticket are District Attorney Tim Sini and Sheriff Errol Toulon, both seeking re-election. Attendees will be able to sign up for various volunteer campaign shifts and obtain lawn signs.

The headquarters is at 1870 Jericho Turnpike, Elwood.
