Alexis Weik is running for Islip town receiver of taxes

Alexis Weik

During her first term, Weik said Islip enabled taxpayers to make payments toward their taxes online for the 2013-14 tax bill. "We had so many things hindering us: lengthy lines, slow computers, lots of clerical mistakes because there were computers crashing all the time" before the new system was installed, she said. Putting the finishing touches on the new computerized system is what Weik would focus on if she were elected for a second term. "It's been important to me to bring in as much technology and give as many options to taxpayers as we can," she said. "We're always looking to expand how we can best serve our constituents." Getting information to constituents is also among her priorities, whether it's through the town website, on a bulletin board outside her office or on radio shows.

Weik, 43, of Sayville, is running on the Republican, Conservative, Independence snd Reform lines. She graduated from Connetquot High School and earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Dowling College. She and her husband owned their own landscaping business for about three years in Sayville, and she also worked as a legislative aide for about six months for Legis. Tom Cilmi (R-Bay Shore) until she was hired in April 2010 as the deputy receiver of taxes in Islip Town. She was elected four years ago to her first term as receiver of taxes.
