Last week’s headline in the East Hampton Star ‘Fusion’ Ticket Goes Down in Flames illustrates the naked political ambition and lack of organization and planning on the part of the Gruber/Klopman ticket abetted by the Republican and so called Independence party. David Gruber, about whom David Rattray, in a September 2018 East Hampton Star editorial wrote “would not be a trustworthy member of the town board”, leads a small group of disgruntled and gullible Democrats that tried to cast their lot with Donald Trump and his supporters and run on the Republican line. Their opportunistic plan was foiled due to their own incompetence.
The Democratic Town Committee is the official organization of the Democratic Party in East Hampton. We are the friendly critic and watchdog of our elected officials.
