Democrats have chosen Rebecca Sanin, president and chief executive of the Health and Welfare Council of Long Island, to run for Huntington town supervisor in the fall.
Sanin, 42, has been active for years in town and county politics and community issues, including work to promote local participation in the US Census and pushing to prevent the closing of the then-Jack Abrams Intermediate School in 2010. Before taking leadership of the council, she was an assistant deputy county executive in the administration of Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone.
“I’m super excited to run for this position,” Sanin said Wednesday. “I am doing it because for a lot of reasons, but largely because I want to return the Town of Huntington to be a place of good government where employees can fee secure and where people can feel the town works for them and the town can be a place of innovation and opportunity.”
She has lived for 15 years in Huntington Station with her family.
