Al Krupski Crushes Challenger By Landslide in Legislature Race

Al Krupski said it's his familiarity with East End issues that garnered him such wide voter support.

Cutchogue native Al Krupski, a Democrat, won his bid for re-election to the Suffolk County Legislature seat he currently holds by a landslide Tuesday.

Challenged by Republican Albie De Kerillis, Krupski came out ahead, with the unofficial tally giving him the lead by a huge margin of 12546 to 4712.

"I'm honored to represent the 1st District again," Krupski said after the race. "I'm going to get back to work tomorrow; we're going to vote on the budget."

Of the scores of voters who turned out to cast their ballots for him, Krupski said, "I think I'm very familiar with the East End and the important issues; that's why people support me."

After his loss, De Kerillis said he conceded and wished Krupski "the best of luck."

Krupski won his Legislature seat last year in a special election race against Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter, after former Suffolk County Legislator Ed Romaine left the post to take the title of Brookhaven Town Supervisor.
