BROOKHAVEN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) - A new man is in charge of the snow plows in one Long Island town, as bad memories continue to linger from last month’s blizzard.

About a month after Brookhaven’s acting highway superintendent, Michael Murphy, resigned following the disastrous blizzard cleanup, there is a new highways chief.

Town Councilwoman Kathy Walsh conceded the close victory to Republican Assemblyman Dan Losquadro on Tuesday.

He takes over just in time for a new storm and memories still fresh from the old one, bad memories for one homeowner.

“Bad,” homeowner Tammy Lombardi told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. “On a scale from one to ten, ten.”

“[I'm looking for it to be] better, so that they’re out plowing, cleaning the roads, and i’ll be a happy camper.”

She said her street didn’t see a plow after the blizzard for three days and she wishes the new highway superintendent well.

“I wish him a lot of luck,” she said.
