Thomas D. Croci is a Republican State Senator representing the 3rd District of the New York State Senate. He was elected to his first political office, Town supervisor for the Town of Islip, New York, in 2011.[1] Croci was first elected to the State Senate in 2014.[2]

Croci resides in Sayville, New York. A 1990 graduate of Connetquot High School, Croci continued his education at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science. After establishing a career in law and the U.S. Navy, Croci returned to Long Island in July 2014.[1]

Croci abruptly left the state Senate to rejoin the U.S. Navy in May 2018 without resigning his seat. According to Newsday, Croci’s absence threw "a monkey wrench into the day-to-day operations of the State Senate" by depriving Senate Republicans of a governing majority. [3] Croci did not seek re-election in November 2018.
