Lupinacci elected as Huntington town supervisor
For the first time in more than two decades, the town of Huntington has a new supervisor.
Republican Chad Lupinacci defeated Democrat Tracey Edwards and independent candidate Michael Raspantini Tuesday night.
He will take over the position after Frank Petrone's 24-year run.
Lupinacci has been a New York state assemblyman for the past five years.
"We're diving right in," he says. "We're going to make Town Hall more efficient, more business-friendly. We're going to bring transparency, accountability, ethics reforms, bring back jobs to the area and increase the quality of life for Huntingtonians."
