Keith M. Barrett is running for Huntington town council member

Keith M. Barrett

If elected, Barrett said, he would focus on public safety in Huntington Station and parking issues in Huntington Village. He added that he expects ethics will continue to be a key issue for the town board in the next term. "Why am I doing this? Because I feel that there is a need," Barrett said. "We need to have good government; the government needs to run like a business. And I'm a small-businessman."

Barrett, 59, of Melville, is running on the Democratic, Working Families and Women's Equality party lines. The Huntington Station businessman has spent more than a decade working in the community, including his role as president of the Huntington Station Business Improvement District. Barrett is co-chairman of the Huntington Station Awareness Day Parade and Festival. He also works as Suffolk County Legis. William Spencer's representative on the County Downtown Revitalization Committee, which focuses on preservation and economic growth. Town officials appointed Barrett to be deputy director of general services in September 2014. Barrett has owned his own business, Barrett Automotive in Huntington Station, since 1997. He and his wife have three adult children.
