Conrad A. Chayes Sr. | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Conrad A. Chayes Sr. is running for Smithtown town clerk

Conrad A. Chayes Sr.

Chayes said that, if elected, he would bring to the clerk’s office the same approach he has used on the planning board: “Would I want that in my neighborhood? Is it good for the town?” Part of his mission, he said, would be to support the current supervisor’s “tightfisted budget policies.” Chayes also pledged, if elected, that he would hold no outside jobs.

Chayes, 66, of Smithtown, is running on the Independence party line. He is serving his first term as chairman of the town planning board. A retired Suffolk County legislative aide, Chayes graduated from Salem College with a bachelor’s degree in political science in 1974. He is married and has two children.
