Charles Fuschillo, New York State Senator (R-Merrick)

Currently serving his seventh term in the state Senate, Fuschillo has been addressing the biggest issues facing Long Islanders for more than a decade.

Fuschillo has made economic development and recovery a top priority, helping create the Broad Hollow Bioscience Park at Farmingdale State College—critical to bolstering biotechnology companies on LI. Last year he authored a law further expanding it. As one of the GOP’s LI Gang of Nine, Long Islanders can always count on Chuck.
