Flotteron, 47, of Brightwaters, also is on the Tea Party and Conservative lines. He is seeking a second term. He worked as an insurance agent and stockbroker. With civic leaders from Brentwood and Central Islip, he helped form the Tri-Hamlet Alliance, a group that he said successfully lobbied the state to give local governments power to go beyond neighboring counties to serve summonses to absentee landlords. He has a bachelor's degree in business and management from SUNY Fredonia.

ISSUES: Flotteron said his top priorities are keeping taxes down, improving parks and marinas and toughening code enforcement on illegal rental properties. He said he had voted against tax increases. He also said he opposes the town's plans to lay off some 50 employees. He said he had secured funding to rebuild Bay Shore Marina's bulkhead. "Now I want to focus even more on our roads," he said.
