As a longtime incumbent with experience in both the State Senate, and prior to that, the Assembly, John Flanagan brings a lot to the table.
A leader in the State Senate’s majority party, Flanagan is cognizant of his constituents’ greatest concerns, and works to control high property taxes by fighting to maintain education funding to local school districts. He votes on the right side of several issues important to Long Islanders, including income tax reduction and a repeal of the MTA payroll tax.
Challenger Joseph Lombardi is little more than a name on the ballot, neither raising funds nor making public appearances in support of his campaign.
We endorse John Flanagan.
