Guadron envisions a more technology-centered clerk's office, with expedited services for documents such as birth certificates, by digitizing the process, which would eliminate the need for printing out an application and mailing it in. "We're going to improve and have a better access to these records . . . Islip needs to go greener," Guadron said. His objective will be to limit paper waste, saving on the town's trash costs, as well as reducing its need to spend money on storage space, he said. "In the long run it'll have to save the taxpayers money; then the board can use the savings to give back to our communities in need."
Guadron, 54, is running in a Democratic primary. A resident of Bay Shore since 2001, Guadron emigrated from El Salvador in 1980. He holds a bachelor's degree in organizational management from Nyack College and was elected a New York State Democratic Committee member for the 6th Assembly District in 2014 and Suffolk County Democratic Committee person in 2010 and 2014. He is executive director of the Salvadoran American Chamber of Commerce and has owned Guadron International Products Inc. and Guadron Trial Services since 2002. Guadron volunteers for nonprofits in Islip such as the Catholic Charities and the American Red Cross. He is a married father of five.
