Suffolk County Legislature, 18th District:
"When William R. "Doc" Spencer won election to the seat previously held by Jon Cooper, he had big shoes to fill. He has filled them admirably - and then some. The insight he brings as a practicing physician is invaluable to the health committee, which he chairs. He has focused on health as well as public safety issues. He delivered for Northport, securing money for sewage plant upgrades, and for Huntington Station, with public safety initiatives like funding ShotSpotter technology, and funding to increase police presence.
Challenger Robert Conte brings a deep interest in the community that goes back generations, and his heart is sincerely in the race. But Spencer sets the bar high. His contributions, particularly to the public health committee, are too great. Dr. Spencer has had a great first term and deserves to continue.
Vote for William Spencer."
