Neil Foley | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Neil Foley is running for Brookhaven town council member, 5th District

Neil Foley

Foley said he has three issues he wants to focus on, if re-elected. First is completion of the Ronkonkoma Hub project, an estimated $500 million project that would include a 1,450-unit transit-related development with 545,000 square feet of office and retail space. For months, Suffolk County has tried to determine a sewer connection plan. “That’s a project that will transform the area and create thousands of jobs,” he said. Foley also wants land-use plans in Medford and East Patchogue adopted to force several automotive-related businesses into compliance, and to renovate Hallock Park in North Patchogue. “We’re the first line of government for constituents. I’m a hands-on town councilman, so I take pride in addressing quality-of-life issues in the district,” he said.

Foley, 49, of Blue Point, is running on the Republican, Conservative and Independence party lines. Foley is a former member of the Brookhaven Town Board of Zoning Appeals. He received a bachelor’s degree in liberal studies from Misericordia College. He taught American studies at Monsignor McClancy Memorial High School in Queens, where he graduated, for three years. Foley is a former vice president of the Bayport-Blue Point Little League. He is married, with four children.
