MAYOR Ralph Scordino

MAYOR Ralph Scordino

Ralph Scordino has served the people of the Village of Babylon as Mayor for the past 16 1/2 years and as Trustee and Deputy Mayor under Don Conroy for 15 1/2 years. He brings many years of community service, commitment, accomplishments and experience in village government to the office of Mayor. Ralph has proven his leadership by utilizing the many talents of our residents to continue our Babylon traditions while embracing new concepts and enhancing the quality of life that we all enjoy as well as maintaining an open door policy and availability to residents. During his tenure as Mayor, the Village has seen many improvements including road renovations, lighting, new fire equipment, docks, trails from Argyle Lake to Southards Pond, parks and programs for our children, the encouragement of new businesses, rehabilitation of the Main Dock, Lewis Pond Marina, the Village pool and expansion of our storm water drainage program which is currently a model in New York State.

Under Ralph’s leadership, this administration has worked hard to maintain a ZERO increase in Village taxes for the past four years. In 2017 and in 2018, Babylon Village received one of the highest bond ratings and stability reports issued by Standard and Poor, another achievement under Ralph’s leadership and administration.

Also during Ralph’s tenure, Babylon Village was awarded the 2010 Smart Growth Award by Vision Long Island. As Mayor, Ralph was responsible for the installation of a “fish Ladder” at Argyle which, for the first time in 100 years, now allows fish to migrate from salt water to fresh water and for the first time during the next migration will have a live video stream to aid schools and environmentalists. Ralph helped pull our Village together and worked round the clock to help our residents during Hurricane Sandy as he has and continues to do during all our winter storms.

Ralph’s leadership abilities have been recognized throughout Long Island. He has served as President of the Suffolk County Village Officials Association and was appointed to the Long Island Planning Commission, the Superstorm Sandy Review Task Force, The Transportation Working Group Task Force, and the Anti Graffiti Task Force.

Ralph is retired after 34 years in education and therefore available to our residents and merchants on a daily basis. Ralph and his wife Linda have been married for 44 years and raised their two children in this Village. They are the proud grandparents of identical 6 year old twin girls.

“As Mayor, I want to continue to preserve and protect the quality of life in our Village as we continue to make a Better Babylon.”
