Joe Schramm is an active, committed community leader and an experienced, marketing business owner who will bring budget management expertise, people skills and friendly energy to Huntington Town Hall. Schramm believes homeowners are the key investors in the Town. For nearly 30 years, Schramm’s business clients have trusted him with their money, and he is determined to protect the financial investment of homeowners with the same careful attention.
Schramm is running for Huntington Town Council because he believes that the burden of rising costs should not be shouldered by homeowners alone. Schramm’s plan is to attract more businesses to re-locate in Huntington to share costs.
Joe is a born and raised Long Islander, a long-time resident of Huntington, and for the past 20 years, a Northport homeowner, where he lives with his life partner, Steve.
Schramm has volunteered to help Alzheimer’s caregivers, promote organ donation among Hispanics, provide organized soccer to underprivileged youth, offer services to LGBT teens, and housing to homeless veterans.

Suozzi’s Selection Committee for National Academies, the Northport Chamber of Commerce, the Northport Police Review Committee, and the Northport-East Northport Schools Future Planning Committee.
