Bridget Fleming (DEMOCRAT) is the new kid on the block. She unfortunately voted to keep the cameras despite the facts. We are very disappointed in her. She serves South Fork of Long Island and includes the Towns of Southampton and East Hampton, as well as Shelter Island and Election Districts 32, 279, and 272 in Brookhaven Town’s East Moriches and Eastport. her district does not have red light cameras so she does not know all the issues.

Robert Calarco (DEMOCRAT)is a follower and votes along with his party lacking any real leadership skills. He serves Patchogue, East Patchogue, North Patchogue, Medford and Gordon Heights. Smaller portions of Blue Point, North Bellport, Middle Island, Coram and Fire Island are also included in the District. The District runs north to Middle Country Road and includes the southern shoreline within the following rough boundaries: Blue Point Avenue to the west and the Bellport Village line to the east.
