B'khaven's Democratic town attorney moves on to court post

In the wake of Republican Edward Romaine’s election as Brookhaven supervisor, Democratic Town Attorney Robert Quinlan is exiting his $115,000-a-year post to work as the $103,000-a-year law clerk to Suffolk Chief Administrative Judge C. Randall Hinrichs, starting Jan. 14.

Quinlan’s exit will clear the way for Romaine to bring in Annette Eaderesto, who had been town attorney when Felix Grucci was town supervisor more than a decade ago. Eaderesto currently serves as a part-time town attorney handling open space deals transactions for the town, making $39,000 last year. She also has served as counsel to the town Industrial Development Agency.

Quinlan will fill the job vacated by Richard Ambro, who was elected in November to State Supreme Court.
