Southampton Town supervisor prepares 'State of the Town' address

Mar 31, 2010 12:42 PM

Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst will give her first State of the Town address on Thursday.

The address will take place at 11 a.m. during the Town Board work session scheduled for April 1 at Town Hall on Hampton Road in Southampton Village.

The supervisor will explain what the town has accomplished and tried to accomplish in the 90 days since she took office, according to Deputy Supervisor Frank Zappone. “We hope it to be a fair and accurate assessment,” he said.

Ms. Throne-Holst will also talk about her 13-point plan, a component of her campaign for supervisor last year, as well as discuss her plans for the next 90 days, Mr. Zappone said.

Nice. Did I miss Bill Wilkerson's "State of EH Address"?

Sounds like Zappone has some doubts when he says "we hope." I'm sure he meant "it will."

930am on a Thursday morning. Working people can't go and the local papers will have the story printed a week later. Makes sense to me.

April fools day address.

Guess that means you're sure to be in attendance

Do you care to explain your comment?

It's pretty obvious to me, and I think it was very appropriate. Let's face it, Remember, you invited that comeback with your inane, thoughtless initial comment. A State of the Town address is a serious thing, and to call it an "Aprils fools day address", as you did, insults and trivializes the whole exercise. I do some commenting on this site, and I'm very critical of some of our public officials, but I respect the effort that each of them puts in. What you said is on the same footing as not ...more

When you consider there has been multiple Saturday public work sessions (in addition to biweekly Thursday evening formal meetings and at least 7 weekly televised Tuesday work sessions), one public stakeholders meeting on a Saturday afternoon at the High School with 100 in attendance, a televised BAC meeting with the Supervisor present and commenting, a summit on deer control attended by 150 people, a public meeting on dredging in Montauk attended by almost 100 including Fred Thiele and jay Schneiderman, ...more

Yes - there have been lots of meetings and forums (and work sessions are part of the regular business of running the Town) - and I commend Bill and the Board for that - but what you call a 'dog and pony show' and 'nothing more than a publicity stunt' is in fact (or would be) a single cohesive WRITTEN statement by the supervisor giving a point-by-point status and action plan on all of the major issues facing the town, chief among them the gigantic deficit, that grows every day and for which there ...more

You obviously do not follow what has happened in East Hampton. A comprehensive proposal was provided to Thiele and LaValle to increase the deficit borrowing authority. That proposal, accoding to reports, included a detailed analysis of the projectected deficit that has allowed legislation to be drafted and proposed to raise the deficit borrowing authorization to $30 million. Then, there is the detailed three year financial plan that was just submitted to the State Comptroller, with, according ...more

Its progress, but still just a dent in the deficit. No, unfortunately, I don't have as much time as you do to devote to following all of the varied proposals and reports that contain all of this detailed information (nor, apparently, does The Press). And unless you're Bill or Len, please stop making excuses for them.

To reduce the ever growing deficit, would Anna Thorne-Holst

cut her extravagant salary, and put new meaning in Public Service ?

Why should she?

ZAZ -- I am neither Bill McGintee nor Lenny Kravitz. I do have the time to read the five local newspapers and read the stories here on 27 east and catch a meeting a week on LTV. Living in Springs I do not get Southampton Sea TV or else I would try to catch some of those board meetings. If you are going to interact intelligently on this thread you should at least take a couple hours a week to know the issues and know what is going on. For example, I know Steve Levy has switched parties and is ...more

Gee - nice to be retired in Springs.
By zaz (197), East Hampton on Mar 31, 10 7:30 PM
Not retired. In fact looking at high schools for my kid. Have any ideas?
