Suffolk Dems back Faivre, Lombardi for Leg. seats
The Suffolk Democrats found candidates to fill two of the four legislative nominations the party left vacant at its convention last week.
Richard Schaffer, county chairman, said the party has chosen Kevin Faivre of East Islip, who once worked for former Islip Supervisor Philip Nolan and is now a county elections worker, to run in the 10th district against Republican Legis. Thomas Cilmi.
Schaffer added the party has selected Nan Lombardi of Centereach, a former Middle Country school board member who works in the county Office of the Aging, to run against GOP Legis. Thomas Muratore in the fourth district.
