East Hampton Democrats need volunteers to help us re-elect Supervisor Larry Cantwell, Councilwoman Sylvia Overby and Concilman Peter Van Scoyoc. 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.

To support Campaign 2015, we are enlisting:

  • Writers and artists to develop literature and posters
  • Computer techies to enhance our social media
    Video makers
  • Fundraising and benefit specialists to compete with the opposition’s well financed campaign
  • Foot soldiers working door to door and on the phone to get out the vote
  • Hosts for parties to showcase our candidates

Please volunteer your time and skills to this effort by calling Vice-chair Betty Mazur at (631) 267-8392 or click here to contact The Committee
