CENTEREACH - Voters will head to the polls today to pick Brookhaven's next highway superintendent after the acting chief resigned following the February snowstorm.

Both candidates, Democrat Kathy Walsh and Republican Dan Losquadro, are promising changes after acting Highway Department Superintendent Michael Murphy came under fire for the poor blizzard response.

However, some are calling for the town officials to appoint a new superintendent, as opposed to waiting for residents to elect one. The practice is done in the other five towns across Long Island. 

The winner of the election will replace interim Superintendent John Rouse.
