Huntington Republicans elected attorney Thomas M. McNally Tuesday night as chairman of the GOP town committee.
He succeeds the late Toni Tepe, who died in April.
McNally, a Centerport resident, was appointed to a seven-year term on the town Planning Board in December, where he has served until his election as party chair.
McNally told the committee, “Toni Tepe was a strong, pragmatic and ethical leader and I am proud to be following in her footsteps. It’s impossible to quantify how many lives she touched, how many people she helped and how dramatically she improved the Town of Huntington during her many years as a public servant.”
The committee said that McNally has plans for more focused implementation of technology, including Zoom type remote communication tools, data tracking platforms and social media to reach voters and for fundraising.
“We will be re-energizing our outreach efforts with a goal of achieving the best results for the party and our candidates by making sure our message gets out to both Republicans and those in other parties that have grown tired of the failed policies of the left,” he said.
McNally has had a long career in law, including work in insurance defense law, real estate law, and local and state government law and law practice management.
