On Tuesday, Nov. 6, after all the votes were counted, I was gratified to learn that the people of the Tenth Assembly District placed their trust in me to succeed my friend and mentor, Assemblyman James D. Conte.
I am truly overwhelmed by the support I received and grateful for the opportunity to represent the district where I have lived my entire life. It was rewarding to learn that my positive message focusing on the most pressing issues resonated with the voters.
These are truly extraordinary and difficult times. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, there remains a tremendous amount of work to rebuild Long Island. I look forward to being able to help the residents affected by the storm. In addition to recovering from the storm, there is much work to be done to jump-start the economy and ensure that Long Island’s schools remain exceptional.
In closing, I would like to thank everyone who supported me during the past three eventful months. Whether your support was in the form of a vote, a donation, distribution of literature, or displaying a lawn sign at your home or business, it is greatly appreciated. To those who did not support me, please know that I will work tirelessly, with leaders in all parties, to address the issues that matter to you.
Chad A. Lupinacci, Assemblyman-Elect, Tenth Assembly District

Mentorship is one of those goals rotary clubs strive for, particularly when it comes to grooming future community business leaders. Nowhere was this more important than when the most recent Farmingdale Breakfast Rotary meeting’s guests were Stanley Pelech, director of Integrated Academic and Technical studies and Jodi Haniquet, advisor of the Farmingdale High School (FHS) Interact club. Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people. The Farmingdale Breakfast Rotary is the sponsor of the 75-plus student strong high school club. Advisor Jodi Haniquet reported to Rotary club members what fundraising events the Interact Club will participate in for the 2015 school year. The service group will once again team with FHS student government in a food drive – donations collected for Island Harvest pantries. They will also participate in Ronald McDonald house dinner program – cooking and serving meals on the premises in New Hyde Park for the many families staying at the residence while their seriously ill children receive treatment at nearby hospitals.

Farmingdale team wins annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Race
On Sunday, Sept. 28, the Farmingdale-based Runner’s Edge team earned first place overall in the 29th annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay. The team, representing the Runner’s Edge running and multisport specialty store located at 242 Main St. in Farmingdale, consisted of Boyd Carrington, Andrew Coelho, Nick Pampena, Tim Lee, Shawn Anderson, Ryan Healy, Kevin Galante, and Brandon Abasolo. It completed the 50-mile course from Jones Beach State Park to Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay in 4 hours, 41 minutes, 58 seconds. The runners won by a margin of more than 10 minutes over the runner-up team from the Sayville & Smithtown Running Company, with much of the difference supplied by the strong Leg 2 performance by Andrew Coelho. Runner’s Edge Teams also took second place honors in the Mixed Open and Men’s Masters Divisions of the Relay. The Relay was sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union (“Built to Give You More”), with new Race Directors Glen Wolther and Keith Montgomery managing the event for the host Greater Long Island Running Club.
