Who is the only candidate with extensive experience in Transportation and Highways ?
Tom Neely was the Director of Public Transportation & Traffic Safety for The Town of Southampton for 16 years.
As a member of The Town’s Transportation Commission for the last few years, I have had the pleasure of working with Tom.
Peter Drucker was considered to be an expert in the field of Professional Management. One of his famous quotes is :
“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.”
I can personally attest that Tom Neely is a good manager and an affable leader.
He also possesses a deep knowledge of the Transportation Industry and the Roads and Highways that carry our cars, buses and trucks around Long Island.
His experience includes:
  • Vice President, Hampton Jitney ( 1987- 2004 )
  • Southampton Town Transportation Director ( 2005 -2021 )
It is interesting to note that some people run for positions in fields  in which they have very little or no experience at all…
In Tom’s case, THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD.
I know Tom.
Tom has my vote.
Please join me and Vote for:
Tom Neely for Southampton Town Highway Superintendent
