Kevin J. McCaffrey | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Kevin J. McCaffrey is running for Suffolk County legislator, 14th District

Kevin J. McCaffrey

McCaffrey said he is proud of his efforts to control spending in the county and to highlight “hidden taxes on residents,” citing the mortgage recording fee and the alarm registration fee. He said he is also proud to have pushed to suspend the red light camera program, saying he doesn’t think the county “is acting responsibly in how they’re overseeing” the program. “It’s become more of a money grab than it is about safety,” he said. If re-elected, McCaffrey said, he would like to continue trying to control county spending and continue raising awareness about the opioid epidemic, calling it “one of the biggest threats” in the county.

McCaffrey, 63, is running on the Republican, Conservative, Independence and Reform lines. McCaffrey is a 1972 graduate of Berner High School in Massapequa. He worked as a truck driver with Roadway Express for more than 20 years, until 1995. He has served as president of Teamsters Local 707 since 2000. He was elected five times to the Lindenhurst Village board of trustees, serving until he was elected a legislator in 2013. He is married, with two children, and lives in Lindenhurst.
