Amy Fortunato bio:
Whether it’s business experience as a project manager at Citibank or church leadership or community organizing towards ‘Smart Growth’ in the Town of Smithtown, Amy Fortunato understands the importance of personal outreach and has demonstrated her willingness to work to identify and address the needs of others in the corporate world and our local community.
After business school and her work experience in the financial industry, Amy chose to utilize her skills through ethical business practices within the banking community to further enhance morale and team involvement. She facilitated the advancements of disadvantaged youth and led efforts to assist others in finding their own paths to opportunities and careers.
Amy has been married to her husband Joe for 27 years and they have lived in Smithtown for decades, where they raised their children.
Amy Fortunato continues to reach out to address issues of concern, whether it is door to door in her neighborhood or publicly taking these issues to the Town Board of Smithtown.
She and the SMITHTOWNFORWARD team are prepared to transform our local town government. Amy will work as a member of the Town Board to identify and focus her attention towards practical results for the citizens of Smithtown as she continues to reach out to our community.
Amy will be on the Democratic Party ballot line, the Working Families Party line and the Women's Equality line on Election Day, November 7, 2017.
With her experience as a teacher and her involvement in many community activities, Patty Stoddard possesses the leadership qualities necessary to be a highly effective member of the Smithtown Town Board. Throughout her experiences as an educator, business owner, soccer coach, and involvement in the community, Patty has demonstrated an ability to welcome input, work as a team member, and find solutions. Her established record of setting and achieving goals provides the foundation for her to, along with the other members of the SMITHTOWNFORWARD team, revitalize the downtowns of Smithtown and create transparency in local government while welcoming community involvement in public decision-making.
Born and raised in Smithtown with his younger brother by working class parents, Justin Smiloff learned early on the value of hard work, teamwork, and perseverance. He graduated from Hauppauge High School with an Academic Letter and participated in many extra curricular activities, all while working a part-time job at a local movie theater.
Representing the New Smithtown Democratic Party, I support government accountability, financial responsibility and enhanced quality of life for Smithtown residents. Local elections are November 3, 2015 – I hope to see you at the polls.
