About Steve Bellone

Steve Bellone was first elected Suffolk County Executive in 2011, representing the more than 1.5 million people who call Suffolk County home. Steve’s top priorities have always been to protect taxpayers and keep our communities safe. Under his leadership, Suffolk has made historic strides in reforming government, promoting economic development, protecting our water quality, and improving public safety.

Upon taking office, Steve inherited a $500 million dollar budget deficit. However, he vowed to not place this burden on taxpayers. Instead, Steve embarked on a bold agenda to reimagine county government. Steve implemented innovative ways to do more with less. He consolidated and streamlined government operations, resulting in a more efficient and cost-effective organization. These reforms have saved taxpayers over $100 million each year.
