VOTERS' GUIDE General Election - November 5, 2019

Patricia A. Shirley

Patricia A. Shirley is running for Smithtown town council member

Patricia A. Shirley

REPUBLICAN

Shirley, 43, is running on the Libertarian line and is seeking her first term. She is chief executive of Shirley Academy, a school that trains people to get certification in medical coding.

ISSUES:

  • Government needs to be more receptive to small business owners and entrepreneurs, Shirley said. “I’ve seen business after business close down.”
  • She would expand the town’s school-age child care program, adding pre-K and bridge programs to give “real world experience” to high school students.
  • She would expand preventive screenings and other public health initiatives that she said are especially important for communities like Smithtown with a high population of senior citizens.
