DiLeo is a proponent of the city’s downtown, which has welcomed some new business in recent years with the newly redone AMC Glen Cove 6, Panera Bread and PetSmart openings. He backs other developments such as the Village Square, a residential and retail project set to open in 2019. The project will bring “new life” into the area, he said. DiLeo wants to continue the budgeting practices of the current administration, which saw a combined $3 million surplus in the past two years’ budgets. “I’m currently a part of what’s going on in the city of Glen Cove,” he said, “and I want to continue doing what I can for everyone in Glen Cove in this capacity.”
DiLeo, 29, of Glen Cove, is an incumbent seeking his second term on the city council, running on the Republican, Conservative and Independence party lines. DiLeo graduated from LIU Post with a bachelor’s degree in finance. He is the president of family-owned insurance agency Cam Associates Inc. in Glen Cove.
