Farmingville, NY –  On January 18, Supervisor Daniel J. Panico announced the appointment of Councilman Neil Foley (pictured) to serve as Deputy Supervisor for Town of Brookhaven. Councilman Foley has been the Brookhaven Town Councilman for Council District 5 (CD5) for the past nine years.

As Deputy Supervisor, Foley will continue to serve on the Town Board representing the residents of Council District 5 where he has preserved over 100 acres of open space properties and helped to develop the Overlay District and Patchogue redevelopment plans.

Expressing gratitude for the opportunity, Deputy Supervisor Foley stated, “I thank Supervisor Panico for giving me the opportunity to serve as Deputy Supervisor. I look forward to working with him and my colleagues on the Town Board to maintain the current policies that improve the quality of life for all residents. It is an honor to serve on the Town Board, and I am excited about my new role as Deputy Supervisor.

While a member of the Brookhaven Town Zoning Board of Appeals, he helped shape the character of Brookhaven to ensure that development was done so in a responsible manner. Deputy Supervisor Foley also demonstrates a strong commitment to charitable causes by actively supporting organizations like the National Association of Mental Illness and The American Cancer Society. He has earned numerous merit awards, recognizing his outstanding sales achievements and exceptional leadership. 

Deputy Supervisor Foley resides in Blue Point with his wife and four children. Additionally, he is a member of the Patchogue Elks organization.
