Remy Bell | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Remy Bell is running for Suffolk County legislator, 1st District

Remy Bell

Bell, who said he is not actively campaigning, said, if elected, he would focus on improving the quality of water in Long Island Sound. He also would work to eliminate the red-light camera system, which he said causes more harm than good. He would work to see the East End get a more proportional share of the county income taxes it pays. “I’d also try to get better-paying jobs to come to Long Island so young families could afford to stay,” he said.

Bell, 62, of Riverhead, making his third bid for office, is running on the Republican party line. He is an election clerk at the Suffolk County Board of Elections and a part-time traffic control specialist with the Riverhead Police Department, where he enforces parking and directs traffic. He ran for Suffolk County Legislature two years ago. In 1985 and 1986, Bell ran as a Democrat for the county legislature and then for state Assembly. Bell is former chairman of the town’s Committee for the Handicapped; a former Riverhead Town Republican Committee chairman; a board member of the teen mentoring program Human Understanding Growth Seminars; and financial director of the Riverhead Polish Hall.
