LIREG Breakfast with congressman Zeldin - April 18

Westbury, NY Congressman Lee Zeldin, a leading voice on U.S. foreign policy currently serving in his third term representing Central and Eastern Suffolk (NY-1), will be the featured speaker at a Long Island Real Estate Group (LIREG) breakfast event at the Old Westbury Country Club on April 18.

A Suffolk County native, Zeldin graduated from William Floyd High School in Mastic Beach, SUNY Albany and Albany Law School, becoming New York's youngest attorney at the time at the age of 23. He spent four years on active duty in the U.S. Army, including an assignment with the elite 82nd Airborne Division serving in Iraq. Congressman Zeldin continues to serve today as an officer in the Army Reserve. Following his service on active duty, he opened a successful law practice in Smithtown until his election to the New York State Senate in 2010. Four years later, he was elected to Congress. According to his office, some of Congressman Zeldin's top foreign policy and homeland security priorities include protecting U.S. security at home and abroad, addressing gang violence and eradicating MS-13 in our communities, bolstering border security, and ensuring our military has the equipment and training they need.

"We are looking forward to hearing Congressman Zeldin's insights as an outspoken advocate for a strong, consistent foreign policy," said event moderator Scott Burman, LIREG executive board member, president of Engel Burman Construction and principal of the Engel Burman Group. "We also anticipate discussing some key domestic issues that impact Long Island. With all the current attention riveted on events in Washington, we expect a great deal of interest in this event."

The event, scheduled for 8 to 10 a.m., is free for LIREG Members and $60 for non-LIREG members.
