A member of the FDNY for 15 years and the North Babylon Volunteer Fire Company for 19 years, McSweeney is chairman of the town’s Department of Public Safety Committee.
- He plans to remain available to constituents, responding to quality-of-life issues he sees on social media and meeting personally with people who need assistance.
- Points to the town’s aggressive fight against abandoned and foreclosed “zombie” homes, and supports the program and database created to respond to the issue.
- Supports maintaining the town’s focus on infrastructure, like repaving and repairing roads, all while maintaining a AAA bond rating and ensuring the town keeps retiring more debt than it takes on each year.
