ASTRID FIDELIA

Democratic

  • Fidelia has served on the Suffolk County Long Island Board of Realtors. She was also a co-founder of the Haitian-American Political Action Committee along with Stand Up To Poverty, a nonprofit organization that recruits and trains leaders in the fight against poverty.

  • Fidelia previously served on Islip Town’s Foreign Trade Zone Authority and worked for Anchor Capital, an international trade services company.

  • She wants to expand the use of electric buses, protect water quality and encourage communities to plan resilience projects for sea level rise.
  • She will use public transportation to promote and showcase the county and Islip. On her website, she says concerns about the local environment and overdevelopment remain unaddressed.
