Puleo said he would continue to “streamline” the clerk’s office by uploading public records to the town website, a project he said would save taxpayer money and increase public access. He said he would continue to pursue grants to aid the town, its fire districts and three villages in record-keeping, he said. “We continue to get away from paper.”
Puleo, 63, of Nesconset, is seeking his fourth term as town clerk. He appears on the Conservative and Republican party lines. He is also a six-term commissioner in the Nesconset Fire District and runs a property management business in St. James. Puleo earned an associate degree in general studies from Suffolk County Community College. He is married and has three stepchildren.
