Islip's first full-term Democratic supervisor in 40 years was sworn in Sunday, marking a shift in the town's political landscape.
Phil Nolan, 57, was inaugurated in front of a cheering crowd of hundreds, which included his mother, Margaret.
The Islip native unsuccessfully ran for the position three times before winning in a special election last year. He replaced Peter McGowan, who resigned over allegations of campaign funds misuse. Nolan then beat Republican opponent Clara Datre in November for the post.
"In 2008, we will focus on streamlining and modernizing government functions, improving our parks and stoking our economic engine that keeps our town running," Nolan said.
"I am humbled and I'm grateful you've given me the chance to lead our town and I thank you with my whole heart," he said. Nolan also thanked his late father and political mentor, Phil Nolan Sr.
Two Democratic council members and a town clerk were also sworn in Sunday, giving Nolan a 4-1 majority on the town board.
