Shelia Carpenter of Lake Ronkonkoma is the newest member of the LIRRCC from Suffolk County. Shelia is a Licensed Master Social Worker and has lived in Suffolk County for 50 years. Shelia does not drive and therefore relies on the rail, bus and subway systems daily. Her field work requires her to commute to Jamaica and then carryout supervisory work in Queens. She also does education training which takes her to Brooklyn, the Bronx and Westchester County – all by public transportation. Shelia has jumped right into rider issues, sending out numerous observations on her I-phone about shortfalls in information signage, problems in train ticket collection, station and bathroom conditions and late buses. We welcome Shelia’s active participation and her desire to make things better for all riders. With Shelia’s appointment all of the Suffolk County seats (5) on the Council are filled.
