Kevin Harvey, a veteran labor leader, was elected treasurer of the Suffolk County Industrial Development Agency on Thursday.

Harvey, former business manager of Local 25 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union, has served on the IDA board since 2012. He succeeds Peter Zarcone, who resigned from the IDA board after retiring from his job with Local 66 of the Laborers’ union.

Josh Slaughter, also a Local 66 official, was selected by the Suffolk County Legislature to fill the board seat vacated by Zarcone.

IDA board members are not compensated for their service.
