Sarah Smith is a Licensed Macro Social Worker, who calls Ronkonkoma home, and spent her upbringing and adult life by caretaking for her parents and her younger sister. Sarah graduated from Connetquot High School before earning her MSW from Stony Brook University, and passing the NYS Social Work licensing exam. Sarah has spent her career helping her community. Specializing in serving the veteran population in particular, managing a homeless shelter, and helping families in mental health, substance use, and housing-related crises, Sarah has excelled in helping our marginalized community members survive and thrive. More recently, Sarah acted as Communications Director for a Suffolk County Legislator, and feels that our elected positions need more candidates who value a person-centered approach - particularly those acting at a local level. Sarah is particularly interested in increasing and improving programs for senior citizens - the folks who have spent their lives in our great Town and made it what it is, should not be left behind now. Sarah hopes serve the Town of Islip as Town Clerk in order to help the Islip community thrive, with resources and programs designed to strengthen the Town's community one individual at a time.
