The Democratic Party, founded by Jefferson and Jackson, made relevant for our times by Roosevelt, Kennedy and Obama, has been the party of ALL THE PEOPLE, regardless of race, economic status or longevity in the American community. These are the values of the Democratic Party in East Hampton, and we seek to bring our community together in furtherance of them and of the unique qualities of our fragile and lovely waterfront town.

To us, a place without a soul is just another ho-hum theme park. We believe that preservation of the unique environment, cultural heritage and authentic history of our town is good for everyone, crucial to the success of our economy and essential to the quality of life that defines East Hampton for all who live here. We are committed to providing needed services to our citizens including affordable housing for working people, seniors and families. We are the only local party to have offered and sustained successful affordable housing options.

We believe in a fiscally sound government and are determined to elect candidates with experience and commitment that ensure good management. We believe that today we build the future tomorrow.


East Hampton Democrats need volunteers to help us elect Peter Van Scoyoc for Supervisor, re-elect Councilwoman Kathee Burke-Gonzalez and Jeff Bragman to the Town Board. The candidates put up by the Republicans offer neither the experience nor the commitments to sustain and continue their achievements in maintaining the Town's unique heritage and sensitive environment; protecting our quality of life in the face of challenges from ruthless big business and irresponsible tourism; providing needed support for working people, children and seniors; managing a government unparalleled in fiscal prudence and civility and enforcing our laws.
