Sean Walter / Hamlet: Wading River
Occupation: Supervisor, attorney
Party lines: Conservative

About him: Mr. Walter, 52, grew up in Suffolk County and has lived in Wading River since 1992. He is seeking a fourth two-year term and has previously served as deputy town attorney for Riverhead Town. He maintains a private law practice in Wading River and is also a former chairman of the town Conservative Party.
 He lives with his wife and children.

His pitch: Since entering office, Mr. Walter’s campaign pitch each time around has been essentially the same, focusing on three different areas: downtown, town finances and the town-owned Enterprise Park at Calverton.

In his words: “I couldn’t fix all the problems overnight. I wish I could have.”

That's why we need to keep Sean Walter
in office to continue the great work that he has
started for the Town of Riverhead.
