East Hampton Democratic Candidates Host Montauk Forum

Posted on 25 July 2013

The Democratic candidates for supervisor and town board will host a Montauk Community “Listen In” Issues Forum on Monday, July 29. The event will be held at Gurney’s Inn in Montauk at 6:45 p.m.

Supervisor candidate Larry Cantwell will chair the meeting, which the candidates said they hope will be an opportunity for residents throughout the community to express their thoughts and concerns about living in Montauk and what they think town government can do to improve the quality of life there. Democratic town board candidates Job Potter and Kathee Burke-Gonzalez will join Cantwell on the panel.

“I look forward to hearing how we can strike the right balance between commercial uses, development, and residential life in Montauk, the home of year-round residents, second-homeowners, and a thriving tourist destination,” said Job Potter.

“We must understand how vulnerable we are from the impacts of coastal storms and plan smarter in the future to help protect Montauk,” said Burke-Gonzalez.

The Montauk Forum is the second in a series of hamlet “Listen Ins” that Democratic Committee candidates will be hosting throughout East Hampton during the course of this year’s election campaign.
