Smiloff said he would open the clerk’s office at 8 a.m., instead of 9 a.m., to better serve residents’ work schedules. He said the change could be made at little cost by staggering the schedules of department employees. He would offer parking permits for people with disabilities online and cut the cost to residents of obtaining official town documents online by bypassing the outside vendor who now offers that service.
Smiloff, 36, of Smithtown, is an assistant Suffolk County attorney who is running on the Democratic, Working Families and Women’s Equality party lines. Smiloff, who ran unsuccessfully for the position of highway superintendent last year, grew up in Smithtown Pines. He graduated from Hofstra University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a law degree from Touro Law Center.
