BROOKHAVEN

All Brookhaven elected officials will be sworn in at Town Hall in Farmingville next year.

The Jan. 7 swearing in will also mark the beginning of the two-year tenure of District 4 Town Councilman Michael Loguercio Jr., who defeated Councilwoman Connie Kepert in November.

“This is very personal to me,” he said in a phone interview. “My son will be holding my grandmother’s bible.”

Even though his grandmother has passed away, the newly elected official said her spirit will be with him as he takes his oath.

“She’s going to be watching as I hold that bible,” he said.

He added, “I’m very excited about it.”

The 4 p.m. ceremony is open to the public and will be held on the second floor of Town Hall in the auditorium.

Officials ask that anyone wanting to attend RSVP by calling 631-451-9100.
