Candidates Start Their Engines

Aug 11, 2015 6:08 PM
With campaign season heating up, candidates for Southampton Town Board were asked to give one sentence highlighting anything they wanted about their campaign.



Jay Schneiderman: “I would like to use my experience representing Southampton for 12 years at the county level to help address quality-of-life issues like deteriorating water quality, overcrowded housing, rising cost of living and traffic congestion.”



Richard Yastrzemski: “I offer current Southampton government experience, proudly serving our community for eight years with local heritage and local knowledge.”



John Bouvier: “In Southampton Town, water quality degradation, lack of workforce housing, traffic problems, and general quality-of-life issues are disturbing our sense of community and place; I want to work together to find solutions that serve us all.”



Damon Hagan: “I believe through support of local community events and public/private partnerships in grant applications, we can revitalize our hamlets without burdening the taxpayer.”



Julie Lofstad: “As an experienced advocate, small-business owner and one who is passionate about our community, I know that our waters and beaches are the backbone of our economy and must be protected, and I will address quality-of-life issues that affect our area, such as housing and traffic.”



Christine Preston Scalera: “My goal as your councilwoman continues to be to ensure that the unique beauty, opportunity and safety of our community are sustained for future generations through focused dedication to issues like the environment, responsible economic development and fiscal stability grounded in low tax rates.”

SCOTT HOROWITZ; My goal is to continue to unabashedly self promote myself and my personal agenda, continue to have endless "conversations" and "discussions" and yet accomplish nothing; to continue to manipulate the trustees for my own purposes; to continue to suck up to the town board so they'll let me run for councilman; to get my picture in the paper as often as possible; to use big words when small words will do so I sound smarter than I am; and to tell anyone who will listen what a great job ...more

And what do YOU do for your community? Care to ask Mr. Horowitz how many hours a week he devotes to Trustee duties? And pray tell, what is his "personal agenda"? The sitting town board has no input whatsoever as to his running for a position there. Do you know anything about party politics? Is he seeking permission of 3 board members (2 Independents, 1 Democrat) to run for a Republican nod? You're way off base here. And of course, because you denigrate a Republican, Mr Bridge has to agree with you.

I'll try to type slowly so you can understand-I do plenty for my community-what do you do? Horowitz isn't doing anything for his community-he is doing for himself. His personal agenda is his own political advancement (like I said in the original post-see it now?)

And yes unfortunately I do know something about party politics. The sitting board members (the republican ones) certainly do have a say in who will run on their ticket; by "they will let me run" I was obviously referring to the ...more

Nailed it, PoliticallyIncorrect! That's as good a description of Scott Horowitz as I've ever seen.

But let's take a look at this guy Damon Hagan. His one sentence up above is: "I believe through support of local community events and public/private partnerships in grant applications, we can revitalize our hamlets without burdening the taxpayer."

Don't know what Damon thinks it will take to "revitalize our hamlets," but it won't happen just by boosting fire department chicken dinners ...more

Scott has made numerous attempts to undermine the authority of the Trustees through back room deals and political shennagins, all with his eye on higher office, vote the bum out!
