The Election

It’s over! The results were bitterly disappointing to the Democrats of East Hampton and to many in our country. The good news is that our elections districts did us proud. Hillary Clinton and Anna both won East Hampton by over 20%. Hillary won in every ED and Anna will likely win every hamlet when the absentee ballots are counted. This is due to the hard work of all the many volunteers who streamed into headquarters to make calls and walk the local neighborhoods of East Hampton. Betty Mazur, Cate Rogers, and Afton DiSunno deserve special applause for their day in day out manning of the headquarters. Naomi Salz and Illyssa Myer worked to create a luscious gathering held at LTV to mark the end of campaign that involved so many who gave so much. But as the returns filtered in to the studio, many in the group were shocked and saddened. We will continue to work to spread our beliefs in an America for all.

East Hampton Dems Elect Officers

At the October regular meeting, the members of the committee voted unanimously for a slate of officers that were unopposed. The committee will be led once more by the competent Jeanne Frankl as the chairman, assisted by the Trojan Betty Mazur as the vicechair. Averil Geus retained her position as secretary and provider of delicious foods at each meeting. The group’s monies will continue to be managed by Illissa Meyers as treasurer.

A Committee with a Latin Beat

In an important first, our Town Board has appointed a Latino Advisory Committee. The purpose of this group will be to better integrate the Latino community into the life and political process of the town. Led by Maritza Guichey and Angela Quintero as co-chairs, with supervisor Larry Cantwell as Board liaison, its members include Diana Walker and Dan Hartnett and six other Latino residents. The committee was the brainchild of the Democratic Town Committee’s “New Leaders” mentored by Diana Walker. Among their activities was a public meeting in Town Hall on the new Rental Registry law that was recently presented. The law was discussed in English and Spanish.

Rental Registry meetings

In a series of meetings for approximately 700 members of the general public and real estate professionals, details of the newly instituted Rental Registry law, which was passed unanimously by our Town Board, were presented. Town attorney Sendlendski wrapped up each of the meetings with a lengthy question and answer period.
