Edward S. Garboski is running for Brookhaven town council member, 1st District

Edward S. Garboski

Garboski said he wants Brookhaven Town to continue the demolition of abandoned homes that violate state and town codes. He also plans to help revitalize vacant homes so the properties can be resold. Revitalizing Route 112 and blighted properties in the area is another concern. If elected, he plans to concentrate on adding local jobs. "I think we have to work with Supervisor [Edward P.] Romaine to bring businesses into the town. We need to create jobs and keep our younger people here," he said. "We need smart development."

Garboski, 61, of Terryville, is running on the Republican, Conservative and Reform Party lines. He has been president of the Port Jefferson Station Terryville Civic Association for three years. He has worked as a construction worker for 39 years. Before that, he owned a home improvement business for 20 years. He graduated from Westbury High School in 1972. It is his first time running for public office. He is married with four children.
