Supervisor Joseph Saladino,
Town of Oyster Bay
On January 31, 2017, Joseph Saladino was sworn into office as the 70th Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor and immediately took action to increase governmental accountability, transparency and integrity. Supervisor Saladino kept his pledge to residents by approving a Town Budget for 2018 that cuts property taxes while eliminating wasteful spending. The 2019 Proposed Budget includes a property tax freeze. Since taking office, Supervisor Saladino has reduced total Town debt by a record breaking 22.5%. The Wall Street firm Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings recently upgraded the Town of Oyster Bay to ‘investment grade’ and recognized the debt reduction actions taken by the Saladino administration to right-size government.
Prior to serving as Town Supervisor, Joseph Saladino served residents in the New York State Assembly for six terms where he was one of the original sponsors of – and approved – New York State’s Property Tax Cap and STAR Rebate Checks. A lifelong community volunteer, he is a 30 year member and past Kiwanis Club President, where he received the distinguished “Kiwanian of the Year” award.
