Following a meeting of the Suffolk County Republican Committee Feb 17, the Republican organization and its committee members endorsed Keith Brown to run in the Special Election for State Assembly on April 28th to fill the vacancy in the 12th Assembly District. The Special Election was called following former Assemblyman Andrew Raia’s election to Huntington Town Clerk.
Brown has secured Raia’s endorsement to succeed him in the State Assembly.
“My entire professional career has been dedicated to make Long Island a better place to live. That’s why the opportunity to continue to fight for the betterment of our community in the State Assembly was one I could not pass up,” said Brown.
Keith Brown started his law firm in 2008 with a handful of files and has grown it into a successful business with fourteen employees, based in Melville. He is a graduate of SUNY Albany. He graduated from Touro Law School in 1990 where he remains active having started the Touro Land Use Institute. Before starting his law firm, he practiced litigation and was appointed to the NYS Attorney General’s office.
“To have earned the support of the Suffolk County Republican and Conservative Committees, and the opportunity to serve the community that I love and raised my family in, is humbling. I can’t wait to get to work to earn the support of voters across our community.”
Brown also noted that the special election will be a defining moment in our state’s path moving forward. “What we’ve seen in Albany over the last year has been one-party rule with dangerous consequences. Bail Reform has to be rolled back. The state is billions in debt and they want to raise our taxes to fix it. They have gone too far. Too many in our community can’t afford to pursue their dreams.
“I’m the only candidate for State Assembly who can confidently assure voters that I won’t support an agenda that threatens and compromises our community and residents.”
Brown lives in Northport with his wife Barbara of twenty-two years and their three children.
