Lohmann said he “would bring transparency and effective full-time town council work for the residents in our township.“ He said he would prioritize downtown revitalization and revamping the town code, outsourcing the work to specialists and drawing on contributions from town hall meetings. He would also outsource and centralize the town’s grant efforts. He would seek to place town representatives on the boards of overlapping tax districts with the goal of reducing residents’ overall tax bill.
Lohmann, 59, of Smithtown, is seeking his first term on the town board. He is running on the Conservative and Independence party lines. Lohmann is an investigator with the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office and a part-time police officer with the Head of the Harbor Village Police Department. He served 20 years with the NYPD, retiring as a detective in 2002, and later served as regional director for the National Insurance Crime Bureau, a position he left in 2013. He graduated from Suffolk County Community College with an associate degree in criminal justice. He is married and has three children.
