Steven J. Flotteron | General Election - Nov. 7, 2017

Steven J. Flotteron is running for Suffolk County legislator, 11th District

Steven J. Flotteron

Flotteron said the top issue is the “financial disaster” facing the county. He said the county needs to stop spending more than it takes in. To do that, he’d look at department spending. He cited what he said was a high cost to house the homeless in motels, compared to using that money for other accommodations and services. He called the county’s red light camera program “a hidden tax. They claim that it’s a safety issue. I don’t believe it anymore,” he said.

Flotteron, 55, of Brightwaters, is running on the Republican, Conservative and Independence lines. He has served on the Islip Town Board for 12 years and owns an insurance and investment agency. Flotteron received a bachelor’s degree in business from SUNY Fredonia. He’s a member of the Bay Shore Lions Club. He is married and has two children.
