Anthony Palumbo, 46, is seeking a third term, having demonstrated he has a strong voice as a member of the minority caucus on matters involving the justice system.

Palumbo worked across party lines to authorize and budget for 20 additional judges statewide in Family Court, which was understaffed. To strengthen ethics, he would close the LLC loophole that provides wealthy donors an end-run around contribution limits.

The New Suffolk Republican has been responsive to local issues, including the addition of Long Island Rail Road service to the busy North Fork. He favors creating a Long Island coastal commission to coordinate among localities.

Democrat Michael Conroy, 57, of Manorville, is not actively campaigning.

Newsday endorses Palumbo.
