Breiner said he wanted to run when current town board member Peter Reich decided to step down. He said his years on the planning board will make it a "seamless transition," with "no learning curve." There is no one or two issues he is interested in, he said, adding that government moves slowly because of constraints and restrictions.
Breiner, 66, is a registered Republican running on the Republican, Conservative, and Reform lines. A lifelong summer resident, and a full-time resident since 1994, he has been on the town's planning board for 10 years. Breiner received his bachelor's of arts degree in 1972 from Adelphi University. He is single. He declined to disclose what he does for a living.
