Elephant Stampede In Brookhaven
Statement by Brookhaven GOP Chairman Jesse Garcia on 2013 Election Night Republican Landslide
"The voters of Brookhaven have spoken loud and clear, embracing the Republican Party's platform with a mandate for our elected officials.
"Republicans commanded a near sweep of every Town office on the ballot, and gaining an historic high plurality in the First Ward. In races that were billed as competitive by the media, the Brookhaven Town Republican Committee won landslide victories - knocking out four Democrats and taking over a fifth seat previously held by Democrats.
"After nearly a decade of downturn Brookhaven has seen during Democratic rule, our residents have rejected their failed policies. Yesterday, they embraced our candidates and their vision of controlling taxes, going after banks who plague our communities with abandoned houses, and improving their quality of life.
"I want to thank the hundreds of volunteers who worked tens of thousands of hours to get this message out. Let the liberals celebrate the victory in New York City that will undo 20 years of progress and improvement - in Brookhaven, we beat Democrats."
On Election Night 2013, the Brookhaven Town Republican Committee knocked out four sitting Democrats in Town Council and judicial positions and picked up a fifth office previously held by a Democrat.
In one year, dating back to the 2012 General Election, the Brookhaven Town Republican Committee has defeated and retaken seven total seats previously held by a Democrat:
• Ed Romaine, Brookhaven Town Supervisor – November, 2012
• Dan Losquadro, Brookhaven Highway Superintendent – March, 2013
• Kevin LaVall0e, Town Council – November, 2013
• Michael Loguercio, Town Council – November, 2013
• Donna Lent, Brookhaven Town Clerk – November, 2013
• Karen Wilutis, First District Court Judge – November, 2013
• Barbara Lynaugh, Sixth District Court Judge – November, 2013

Brookhaven GOP Earns Reputation of Beating Democrats!
To the Members, Friends, Supporters & Contributors of the Brookhaven Town Republican Party,
I want to personally THANK YOU for your amazing effort this campaign season which culminated with historic results at the ballot box last Tuesday Night when we elected not one, but TWO NEW Council Members to the Brookhaven Town Board – increasing our Republican Majority to six.
Brookhaven Republicans commanded a near sweep of every Town office on the ballot, and gaining an historic high plurality in the First Ward. In races that were billed as competitive by the media, the Brookhaven Town Republican Committee won landslide victories - knocking out four Democrats and taking over a fifth seat previously held by Democrats.
In a single year, starting with the election of Ed Romaine as our Town Supervisor followed by the election of Dan Losquadro as our Highway Superintendent earlier in March and now with the results of the 2013 General Election, the Brookhaven Town Republican Committee has taken back SEVEN seats previously held by Democrats.
We have come a long way together. When we started this journey in March of 2007 - when you first elected me as your Chairman - our party held only three of the 11 town elected posts. Tonight, 10 Brookhaven Town Republican Party candidates now occupy these posts.
Quite frankly, the Brookhaven Town Republican Committee has earned the reputation of Beating Democrats at the ballot box. We achieved these great goals because as a Party we are resilient, united, and tenacious.
We do this because we are committed to our party principles, core values, our communities and making the lives a little better for the hardworking families of Brookhaven Town. .
As I have said on many occasions, as Members and Friends of the Brookhaven Town Republican Committee - We Work Harder, Smarter for the Taxpayers.
Together let’s welcome Kevin LaValle and Michael Loguercio as our NEWLY ELECTED Members of the Town Council; Donna Lent as our Town Clerk; and congratulate our own Karen Wilutis on her election to the First District Court and Barbara Lynaugh’s election to the Sixth District Court.
Once again, THANK YOU for all of your support and commitment to our Party. I look forward to hearing from you; please feel free to call or email me at your convenience.
- Jesse Garcia, Chairman
