Erin McTiernan, who managed GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin’s past two re-election campaigns, will become a $97,240-a-year assistant Suffolk Board of Elections commissioner in April.
McTiernan will start at the board in a lower level position April 1, but move into the assistant commissioner’s post held by Keith Tuthill of Southampton, who will retire April 11.
A Touro Law School graduate who has passed the bar exam, McTiernan will handle GOP election law issues. Josh Price, who left last summer to become chief of staff to the Huntington Town supervisor, last handled the elections board role.
Another Republican appointment is Stella Losquadro, hired as a $69,134-a-year elections board senior election clerk. She is the wife of Steve Losquadro, counsel to the Suffolk County Republican Committee, and the sister-in-law of Dan Losquadro, Brookhaven highway superintendent.
A former senior accountant at Salomon Brothers, and an auditor for Citibank, Losquadro will oversee campaign finance issues for board Republicans.
