This week, Sag Harbor Mayor Brian Gilbride announced he will continue to support incumbent trustees Robby Stein and Bruce Stafford and endorses their candidacy for re-election on Tuesday, June 19.
Stein and Stafford are both seeking a second elected term to the village board. Stein was appointed to his first term in 2009.
Sag Harbor Fire Department member and East Hampton Village Police officer Kevin Duchemin has also thrown his hat in the race, but on Monday, Mayor Gilbride said he believed Stein and Stafford should remain on the board.
“Robby and Bruce have both worked very hard and have put a lot of time into this board,” said Mayor Gilbride. “We don’t always agree, but we get along and all of us are working for what we believe is best for the village as a whole.”
Mayor Gilbride praised Duchemin’s initiative and said he believed one day he would be the right candidate for village board.
“I am just not so sure that time is now,” said Mayor Gilbride.
