At the heavily attended annual East Hampton Democratic Committee Christmas party at Nick and Toni’s, Chairman Jeanne Frankl presented the Democrat of the Year Awards proclamations to Cate Rogers and Afton Disunno. These two women ran the Democratic headquarters during the campaign leading phone banking sessions and arranging for the covering of all election districts of East Hampton by people knocking on doors of the residences of our town. Their daily long attendance at the headquarters and the monitoring of the actions taken by the flow of numerous volunteers, helped East Hampton bring all of its ED’s to a successful result for Hillary Clinton.
Ms. Frankl also gave special recognition to the party’s Vice Chair Betty Mazur for her tireless efforts to register new Democratic voters and efforts on behalf of the Get Out The Vote (GOTV) drive. Supervisor Cantwell congratulated the work done by all to deliver positive results for our candidates. Also in attendance, County Legislator Bridget Fleming applauded the solid passage of renewal of the CPF fund including the 20%, which will be used to benefit our water quality.
