Dear Helen,

 This is to thank you and your staff, particularly Julia Mead, for your evenhanded and thorough coverage of this year’s Trustee race.  Julia was at all the important events and reported accurately all the relevant information to our Town’s residents.  She and your staff provide an invaluable community service that cannot be underestimated, and is not, by this former candidate.  Although I didn’t win this time, I hope to be back sometime in the future after learning a little more, maybe through a job at the Planning Board or the ZBA.  The experience gained has been, without question, the kind that cannot be bought.  I feel lucky to be invited to be a part of this process.  Once again, thank you for your accurate and level coverage and indeed, your endorsement of my candidacy and, please pass on my personal kudos to Julia for a job well done.

Warmest regards,

Barry W. Leach
former Democratic Candidate for
East Hampton Town Trustee
