Hear What They’re Saying

Posted on 19 February 2010

We urge you to attend one of several evenings scheduled over the next week or so to meet the two candidates who are vying for the one available seat on the Southampton Town Board. The seat was formerly held by Anna Throne-Holst, who was elected the town’s supervisor last year. A special election will be held on March 9 to fill the seat.

But just because this is a special election for one seat does not diminish its importance. As in any board of elected officials, a single voice can have a profound influence. A single vote can change policy, law or the direction the town may take.

Convenient to many of our readers, on Wednesday night, February 24, the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons will host a debate at the Southampton Cultural Center. That evening both Bridget Fleming, the Democratic and Independence Party candidate, and Bill Hughes, who has been endorsed by the Republican Party, will square off.

You owe it to yourself to hear what they have to say.
