UPDATE: Schneiderman Wins Reelection In Southampton; Bouvier and Martel Win Town Board Seats; Fleming Returns To County Seat

Please support Fred Havemeyer and Eric Shultz as they look to return to the Town Trustees board. They have been in this role previously and the community has seen their commitment, independent views, focus on water quality, and dedication as stewards of our waters / community access rights.
I also support a complete change with the Trustees currently in office: there was a recent unanimous vote where the current Trustees all agreed to give water-access property (one half of an acre) to a homeowner in exchange for the homeowner taking care of that land. This decision was perplexing and the fact that it was unanimous is very disturbing. With this and in other areas where we have not seen leadership and cooperation, demonstrates a lack of commitment to their role.
The Trustees should not be aligned with any 'political party', as affiliations may exist for fund raising and campaign donations, which can impact decision-making. . Recent 'robo-calls' ask for 'voting on party lines' across the slate. This perspective supports political and big donor / developer influence.
The Trustees need to be a Board of independent thinkers, who focus on being true stewards of the water and community access rights. Please vote for a change. " Nov 5, 19 12:41 AM

For Trustees: Havemeyer, Shultz, Brosnan, then Law, and maybe Fry (?) At a presentation entitled: “Contaminants of Emerging Concern in Drinking Water: ” at Stonybrook Univ-Southampton, this past Friday Nov 1, three of the Trustee candidates were there (only three out of the ten vying for that Board!) to listen and learn about such a critical topic, affecting us all. Thank you Fred Havemeyer, Eric Shultz, and Andy Brosnan for showing your commitment to the quality of our waters by gaining more knowledge!" Nov 5, 19 1:07 AM

Ann, in her Trustee capacity, contacted people / members from a local lake association and PROVIDED INCORRECT information on an algae bloom, and said "hopefully it will go away soon"! [what?...we had greater and accurate info when residents made two calls, after her irresponsible feedback.] She attributed the algae to 'warm temps' and 'still water'; since the issue occurred in Sept, weeks after 'warm temps' and during a windy time, the info was all wrong. Through public info available through a group she is a member of ( the Surfriders), if she would have taken 5 minutes, she would have had correct info, about temps, wind, and movement. Both Pell and Welker NEVER responded when algae was identified by members of the community and we reached out to the Trustees. We had better and more timely info when they did not respond and we sought out Stonybrook Univ labs directly. Time for a change.
