Republicans Choose Smyth to Run Against Gaughran

Nassau and Suffolk Republicans have picked Huntington Town Councilman Edmund Smyth to run against Democratic State Sen. James Gaughran in November.

“Jim Gaughran is a good man who votes badly in Albany,” Smyth said. “I look forward to a spirited debate on the issues.”

Smyth was elected to the Town Board in 2017. He is a lifelong resident of Huntington and formerly served on the Lloyd Harbor Zoning Board of Appeals.

He has also served as a staff sergeant in the US Marine Corps Reserve.

The 5th Senate District includes the northern portions of the Towns of Huntington and Oyster Bay and the City of Glen Cove.
