History of Hispanic Advisory Board

In 2013, Supervisor Romaine established the first Hispanic Advisory Board in the Town of Brookhaven to help improve cultural understanding between the Hispanic community, civic and business leaders, Brookhaven government, and Town residents. The Hispanic Advisory Board serves as a sounding board to the Town Board and provides viable recommendations on policies that advance the social and economic well-being of His panics and all citizens in the Town of Brookhaven.
