On October 20, approximately 300 people attended the Town of Brookhaven’s Fourth Annual Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration hosted by Brookhaven’s Hispanic Advisory Board. During the celebration of Hispanic culture, 81 high school seniors from 14 school districts throughout Brookhaven were honored for achieving a grade point average of 95 or higher. Also honored duringthe celebration was Suffolk County Supreme Court Judge Fernando Camacho for his dedication to finding alternative solutions for at risk and troubled youth in our community.

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.
