Edward R. Wehrheim is running for Smithtown town supervisor

Edward R. Wehrheim

Wehrheim said he would work on “vital” commercial development of Smithtown’s downtown area, starting with sewer construction. He would go to the bond market to pay for an estimated $10 million in needed improvements and repairs to town recreational facilities, work that would include rebuilding ballfields, updating playground equipment and repaving cart paths at the golf course. “They do need attention, they need work, and through bonding and smart expenditure of funding,” he said, “I’m sure we can do it.”

Wehrheim, 69, of Kings Park, a town board member, is making his first bid for supervisor on the Republican, Conservative and Independence party lines. He is a Republican serving his fourth term as a councilman and is a former director of the town’s parks, buildings and grounds department. Wehrheim is originally from Kings Park and graduated from Kings Park High School. He is married and has two children.
