ISLIP - Residents and lawmakers in Islip are expressing support for Supervisor Tom Croci, who has just been recalled to active duty.

Croci, a lieutenant commander in the Navy Reserve, will temporarily leave in July for overseas duty. He previously served two tours in Afghanistan and served on former President George W. Bush’s national security team.

“There’s still a job out there to do and when you’re called to do it, you have to respond,” says Croci.

Even Croci’s political rivals, who recently tried to take over some of his political powers, have only good things to say about him.

“Tom is going to be away making us proud serving our country,” says Councilwoman Trish Bergin Weichbrodt.

Longtime town employee Eric Hofmeister will serve as deputy supervisor in Croci’s absence. He previously served as supervisor back in 2006 when Pete McGowan left office.
