Traffic management and adequate parking remain challenges for the town, he said. “The North Fork has always been a destination during harvest season, but now the season is May to Christmas. We’re doing the best we can to keep the agricultural feel and small-town ambience,” Ghosio said. “We have to keep focused on how to get people here and in and out safely.” Among the quality of life issues he would continue to address are controlling the town’s deer population — something he said the town’s new wildlife manager can work on with area groups — and figuring out ways to deal with noise from helicopters, which he said is among the top complaints to Town Hall from residents.
Ghosio, 54, of Greenport, is seeking his second term. He is running on the Republican and Conservative party lines. Ghosio, a manager at a heating and air conditioning company, earned a bachelor’s degree in zoology at SUNY Oswego and did graduate work in divinity at Drew University. He is a member of Ducks Unlimited, Peconic Bay chapter, and is president of the church board at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Aquebogue. Ghosio was a trustee from 2006 to 2013. He is married and has two children.
