Darryl R. St. George | New York primary - Sept. 12, 2017

Darryl R. St. George is running for Huntington town supervisor - Democratic

Darryl R. St. George

St. George said he has core issues he would like to focus on: ethics reform, democratic reform, environmental protection, opioid addiction and gang prevention, and campaign finance reform. He said he would like to create an inspector general position to oversee spending, contracts and potential fraudulent activities, and would increase voter turnout and civic involvement through the creation of a civic advisory board open to residents, school districts and community groups to act as a vehicle to get more people involved in the decision making process. He supports term limits, sustainable growth and affordable housing, but does have concerns about how some development affects the environment. He believes developers who have pending or current contracts with the town should not be able to make direct contributions to elected officials. “I think those issues speak loudly as to why people should vote for me,” he said. “My main concern with all of these issues is the common theme, which is democratic reform and getting people involved in the political process,” he said. “People should cast a vote for me because I’m going to get up every day, 24/7 and work tirelessly for the people of Huntington.”

St. George, 35, of Centerport, is making his first run for town supervisor in a Democratic primary. He is a Navy veteran raised in Northport who now teaches at Northport High School. He is a former president of the Greenlawn Civic Association. He ran unsuccessfully for the Harborfields school board in 2013, and considered a run for the town board in 2015. He is single with no children.
