On Tuesday November 3rd, Vote for the Tom Licari Reform Team The Islip Town Democratic Committee has assembled a slate of candidates from all parts of Islip. They are union members and small business owners who believe that Islip deserves better.

The Reform Team includes Tom Licari for Town Supervisor, Chris Pulitano and Brightwaters Mayor Joe McDermott for Town Council, Astrid Fidelia for Town Clerk, and Maxima Castro for Receiver of Taxes.

This team is committed to fight for homeowners, small business owners, and all of the hardworking people of this town, to clear their path of unnecessary red tape and bureaucracy so that we can ensure that our local administration supports rather than stands in the way of their success. They pledge to keep our taxes stable and within the governor's tax cap, to eliminate waste, to restore accountability, and to increase transparency. They will restore fiscal discipline, and operate the Town for the benefit of residents, not as a source of political patronage.
