Town Supervisor Focuses on "Community" in State of the Town

March 30th, 2018 – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter presented the State of the Town Address recently. The Supervisor drew from the Town’s various cultures, languages and ethnicities, as well as its vast number of community groups, civic organizations, and boards, and paid tribute to the relationships fostered with Islip Town government, the third largest in the State of New York. The speech focused on a sense of “Community” in the Town.

“Our Town is a partnership among all of its residents: its employees, its businesses, the people who call it home, and the government who serves them all. More than that…we are the community built around that partnership,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter, who took office in 2015. The Town of Islip has more than 335,000 residents, four villages and 20 hamlets, and boasts an Aaa rating from Moody’s Investors.

Islip Town Board members, commissioners and employees, joined with local dignitaries, business leaders and educators, including Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine, Suffolk County Legislator Tom Cilmi, MTA Director, Mitch Pally and Brentwood Schools Superintendent Richard Loeschner, at the event.

The Supervisor noted the Town’s 2018 Tax Compliant Budget, and the Town-owned commercial airport, Long Island MacArthur, which saw a $3M surplus for 2017, and offers 15 nonstop destinations from Ronkonkoma, NY. Highlights of the address included the accomplishments of the Islip Economic Development Office, which in 2017, induced more than 50 new projects through the Industrial Development Agency, representing a total capital investment of nearly $500M.
