Sneden as president of the Huntington Chamber of Commerce in 2003 was investigated by the Suffolk County district attorney’s office into a trip to Huntingdon, England, by Huntington Supervisor Frank Petrone, Councilwoman Susan Berland, public relations consultant Todd Shapiro and Sneden in 2003. The DA’s office requested records from the chamber related to the trip, paid for with donations solicited by Shapiro’s firm, which had been awarded a public relations contract with the town.
No charges were filed against any of the principals, in that case.
