East Hampton Town
Democratic Committee


1997 Trustee Campaign, Thanks

     Well it seems that this year's election was successful in providing sweeping change.  Supervisor Cathy Lester retained her seat and the Town Board is once again Democratically controlled, and, pending a count of mail-in votes, the Board of Trustees will also be Democratically controlled by a 5-to-4 margin.  It's a tremendous victory for the Democrats and speaks loudly to all those issues discussed in the campaign.  I'd like to heartilly congratulate in particular, Trustee candidates, Dianne Mamay, Gordon Vorphal, Jim McCaffrey, Josh Edwards, Richard Lester, Harold Bennett, Martin Bennett, Mary Gardiner and either Bill Mott, Frank Kennedy or Pete Kromer.  Bill, it seems, is on the bubble pending the mail-in vote count.  All have been true gentlemen and ladies during this campaign of real issues and I am honored to have met them and the other candidates and to be a small part of our Democratic process.  To the 3092 residents that voted for me, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.  I'm sorry to say that I don't know most of you but you are apparently familiar with me.  All I can say is that I'm not going away.  I'll be back after learning a little more, maybe on the Planning Board or ZBA, and we'll try this again in four years or so.  Or maybe the Town Board?  Hmmmm.  :-)
