Al Krupski

Among the most crucial local issues for the North Fork is protecting water quality, and Albert J. Krupski Jr. knows that well.

Chronically poor drainage on roads during even moderate storms can lead to flooding and an endangered aquifer, and the solutions are expensive and time-consuming improvements to our drainage systems — the kind of work for which Krupski is well-prepared. The 61-year-old Cutchogue Democrat comes from a multigenerational farming family and has the legislative experience at the town and county level to tackle the tough challenges that bedevil Suffolk districts, from mind-boggling traffic to the promotion of affordable housing.

These and other thorny issues need a steady hand as the district becomes even more threatened by climate change and more densely traveled by visitors and newcomers.

Krupski’s opponent, Republican Remy Bell, 66, of Riverhead, is not actively campaigning, according to the Suffolk GOP.

Recently, Suffolk County Sheriff Dr. Errol D. Toulon, Jr., was appointed to the Major County Sheriffs of America’s Intelligence Commanders Committee. This committee was formed to foster communication among law enforcement agencies as an avenue for addressing public safety threats facing our communities.

The primary goal of the Intelligence Commanders Committee is to provide sheriff’s departments with timely and accurate intelligence during both times of crisis and periods of normalcy. It will focus on current threats such as foreign and domestic terrorism, human and narcotics trafficking, and cyberattacks. The work of this committee will not be exclusive to sheriff’s departments; it will remain engaged with other law enforcement organizations including the Major City Chiefs Association and federal agency partners.read more ››

Suffolk County could be eligible to receive millions of roughly $55 billion in federal funding for water quality through the bipartisan infrastructure bill amid an increase in brown tide in Long Island waters, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Saturday at a news conference in Patchogue.

Speaking alongside environmental advocates and local officials overlooking the Great South Bay on Laurel Street, Schumer, the Senate majority leader, said that starting Monday, during negotiations over the bill, he will push the Senate to include funding for federal water infrastructure line items. That would help Suffolk and New York State tap water infrastructure funds to tackle brown tide in local waters.read more ››
