Dean Murray is the newly elected Assemblyman for the 3rd Assembly District which includes Bellport, Blue Point, Brookhaven Hamlet, Coram, Farmingville, Gordon Heights, Holtsville, Medford, Middle Island, Patchogue, and parts of, Mastic, Selden, Shirley and Yaphank.
With Suffolk County homeowners paying the 12th highest property taxes in the nation, Dean has been fighting to cut out-of-control property taxes and cap future increases. He wants to rein in wasteful state spending and reform state government so it starts working for the people and not the special interests.
In addition to being a newly elected State Assemblyman, Dean is a successful small businessman who understands what it takes to create jobs and provide healthcare and retirement for hard-working people. That’s why Dean has been pushing for common sense, bi-partisan solutions to cut job-killing taxes to make it easier for Long Islanders to live, work and raise their families. Dean has led the charge in fighting to eliminate the unfair, job-killing MTA payroll tax.
Since 1997, Dean has owned a Long Island-based advertising agency, D & S Advertising Inc, which publishes the Long Island Job Finder, Long Island Apartment & Rental Finder, Long Island Real Estate Finder, and the Long Island Fugitive Finder magazines and websites. Through these publications, Dean’s built a successful business that employs Suffolk County residents and has helped scores of Long Islanders find good jobs and homes to call their own.
Through the Long Island Fugitive Finder, which is distributed free of charge to the public across Long Island, Dean has helped to successfully apprehend over 300 dangerous criminals to date.
