Claire A. McKeon | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Claire A. McKeon is running for Suffolk County legislator, 14th District

Claire A. McKeon

McKeon said she “doesn’t care for the direction the district is taking” and wants to see some change, including more economic development. She said she wants to tackle the opioid epidemic head-on by working with law enforcement, but also by providing more facilities for rehabilitation. She suggests using shuttered school buildings, which districts are spending money to maintain, to house such programs. McKeon also wants to try to get more high-tech jobs on Long Island and form a committee with residents to figure out how to keep young people from leaving the Island.

McKeon, 64, is running on the Democratic Party line. She has an associate degree from Suffolk County Community College. She began working for Babylon Town in 1990 as a bookkeeper for the youth bureau. In 1993, she began working for the town Industrial Development Agency, then came back to the youth bureau as deputy director. For the past five years, she has served as executive director of the bureau. She is not married, has three sons and lives in Lindenhurst.
