SMITHTOWN, NY – Steve Snair, the Democratic, Independence, and Working Families candidate for Smithtown town supervisor, was endorsed today by United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
In a statement, Sen. Gillibrand praised Snair for his vision and commitment to Smithtown’s residents. “Steve Snair will bring a new vision and fresh approach to Smithtown as supervisor. He is the right choice for our hard-working families and taxpayers.”
“It means a lot to me to receive the support of Senator Gillibrand,” said Snair. “She is a champion of New York’s middle class and a role model for all public servants. I look forward to emulating Senator Gillibrand’s work ethic and providing her with a partner in Town Hall to better Smithtown.”
Steve Snair is a private practice attorney and small business owner based in the Town of Smithtown. The lifelong resident of Smithtown announced his candidacy for supervisor in April of this year, running on a platform of revitalizing the town through updated planning, job creation and economic development, which will grow the tax base and relieve the burden off middle class taxpayers.
Gillibrand has served in the United States Senate since January 2009. During her time, Gillibrand has led the effort to create good-paying jobs across New York. She has advocated for cutting taxes for the middle class and small businesses, investing in research and development and renewable energy, and upgrading infrastructure around the state. She was also instrumental in providing health care and compensation to 9/11 first responders.
