Bridget Fleming

Welcome to my website and thanks for visiting! I have been honored to serve Suffolk County's 2nd District as your Legislator for two years now, and I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished.

I’ve focused my efforts on three areas that are critical to the East End: providing economic opportunity, defending the environment, and keeping your government accountable to you.

I look for opportunities to build our economy for the benefit of the entire community, I fight hard to protect our precious and fragile natural resources, and I draw on my experience as a fraud prosecutor to ensure that government handles your hard-earned tax dollars prudently.

I’m excited about the prospect of carrying these efforts forward by continuing to serve in the Suffolk County Legislature, representing voters from Moriches to Montauk, and Shelter Island. Serving in County government offers the chance to project our goals on a wide screen. That’s important because many of our challenges, like water management, call for regional solutions that touch multiple towns.

My family and I treasure our community and all it has to offer. As a County Legislator, I show up having done my homework, ready to work with others, and unafraid to say what needs to be said. If elected once again as your County Legislator, I’ll continue to do the same .
If you’d like to help, please be sure to visit my Volunteer & Contribute page, or tap Contact to get in touch. Thank you all for your support! I’ll see you around the East End.
