Anthony Portesy

Candidate for: 
Brookhaven Superintendent of Highways

I'm Anthony Portesy, Democratic Candidate for Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent. I am a proud Brookhaven resident raised here my entire life. I am a product of the Middle Country School District, graduating from Newfield High School. Prior to attending law school, I attended Stony Brook University and graduated with a degree in Business Management and Political Science. My ties to the community are deep and that is why I wanted to get involved
I have watched our infrastructure deteriorate beneath our feet while the tax burdens of living in Brookhaven are driving my friends and family away. Our roads are in disrepair and our infrastructure is falling apart. This is happening despite the fact that as taxpayers, we are currently investing over $115 million dollars in our highway department. Year after year, we see the budget grow, yet things are not getting better. There’s a pervasive “business as usual” climate in our highway department --with little accountability. I believe that with new approaches, energy and technology, we can make our community one that we can be proud of and one that people can afford to live in. The Highway Department and the Supervisor’s office must work closely together to make sure that Brookhaven residents get the government services that we deserve. I hope that you will support me, Anthony Portesy, on November 7th. Together, we can build a better future for Brookhaven.
