Huntington Station, NY - October 31, 2018 - Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci visited 7-year-old student Angelica Dee Cunningham, whose letter to the Supervisor inspired the renaming of the Town to “Hauntington” in the spirit of Halloween, in front of her classmates at Washington Primary School on Tuesday, October 30.
 
“Angelica Dee Cunningham, a Huntington resident, student and avid trick-or-treater, wrote to my office and asked that we rename the Town ‘Hauntington’ for Halloween,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, who sponsored the resolution to rename the Town. “The Town Board unanimously voted to start this new tradition -- I commend Angelica’s interest in local civics and I encourage all of our students to follow her lead!”
