East Hampton Democratic candidates for town supervisor and town board will host their fourth community “Listen In” on Thursday, September 19 in the Sessions House of the East Hampton Presbyterian Church on Main Street in East Hampton.
Residents of East Hampton, Wainscott and Northwest, are invited to express ideas and concerns they have in their communities. As in the Democrats’ recent programs for Springs, Montauk and Amagansett, refreshments will be served at 6:45 p.m. followed by a program from 7 to 9 p.m. The town board candidates, Larry Cantwell for supervisor and Job Potter and Kathee Burke-Gonzalez for town board, hope many residents from all parts of town will take the mike.
“There is nothing better than listening directly to what’s on the minds of residents,” said Cantwell “It helps us find reasonable solutions to the serious issues we face.”
“We live in a beautiful and productive town that is always changing and facing new challenges and opportunities,” said Potter. “The right kind of interaction between the citizens and their town board is the cornerstone of effective government.”
“It is my belief that there needs to be a return to open governance to help rebuild the public’s trust and satisfaction in town government,” said Burke-Gonzalez. “Next week’s forum is the perfect opportunity for the candidates to listen to what matters most to the folks in East Hampton.”
The next Listen-in will be for residents of Sag Harbor on Sunday, October 6, 11:30 a.m.at Christ Church in Sag Harbor.
