That is something we can achieve together.” The Federation said it looked forward to “working with you to build opportunities for the next generation, to live and work here on Long Island is safe, prosperous communities.”
“I am gratified that the Long Island Federation recognized my continuing dedication to keeping Huntington a Town that fosters economic development, preserves our middle class life style and paves the way for our future,” said Councilwoman Cergol, who also received Long Island Federation support in her 2018 election campaign. “I thank the LI Fed for their endorsement and look forward to continuing to work with them.”
