If the Republicans give Linda the nomination all is lost with the party, it would be a shoe in for the Dems. There are not too many, if any, Linda lovers left in the town, let alone the Republican party for her to win the primary or the November election. Malone's charisma alone is enough to dissuade Republicans from voting for Linda. " May 13, 09 10:38 PM
Leave it to your teenage son to say "lets open a can of whoop-ass," not our supervisor. Show some tact." May 19, 09 12:30 PM
Sea-TV Town Board meetings have been the greatest comedy on television this past year. Linda's lack of couth not only towards other board members but also to the public is disgraceful. Nancy has become a puppet for Linda, and the quarreling between the ladies has made me embarrassed to live in this town.
Southampton needs to get back to smaller government, lower taxes and a pay as you go philosophy. I've had enough of the town buying up and converting nightclubs into town properties that are under utilized. How can we continue to pay for these town centers and properties that are failing to give the town any financial return, its just common sense.

Supervisor Seat for Sale?
It didn’t take long for Southampton Town officials and party leaders to catch on to the politics of Illinois. This scheme sounds eerily familiar to the one I pulled this past winter. I just hope this one doesn't end in an indictment too.
Good Luck Southampton Town,
Fmr. Gov. Rod Blagojevich

Good for the TOWN Conservative Party, a party of integrity, They aren't going to give into Linda and her cronies as they attempt to blackmail and bully their way into office." Jul 28, 09 12:31 PM
You actually think Malone backed out of the primary on his own??? Stinchi gave into Linda in fear of himself, his mother and Heaney losing their seats on the GOP committee to Linda and her cronies. Ed Walsh (County Conservative leader) promised Linda the nomination not the Town Party. The SH Conservative Party had enough common sense not to nominate someone that their party members did not sign petitions for or would ever vote for. Linda does not run a government in accord to the political philosophy of Conservative Party. The Conservative Party has no loyalty to her and they owe her no favors. And I am sure the party committee members did not forget that she tried to layoff 6 police officers (take a close look at the committee members). So there is absolutely no reason for everyone to be all up in arms for her not getting the nomination. So don’t tell me I am spewing nonsense, maybe you need to read up on your facts before making blanket statements. " Jul 28, 09 11:04 PM
The deal was Linda would get the GOP nod and as a result would not continue to mount a race for seats held by Stinchi, his mother (Pat) and Skip on the GOP committee (that is right out of 27east). Unless you are Jim Malone, which I am quite certain you are not, don’t say that it was a better deal for him. Malone also received more signatures on his GOP petitions than Kabot, so why would he back out.
Malone did not broker the deal with Linda; Ed Walsh told her she could have the nod. Malone had enough decency to poll his fellow committee members and take into consideration that they did not support a Conservative nomination of Linda. It was the Conservative Party committee members who decided not to give Linda the nomination not Malone or Ed Walsh. Not giving Linda the nomination was a decision made by the Party not one person.
Why shouldn’t the Conservative platform be considered when nominating a candidate? Nominating someone who is not fiscally responsible does not go in accord with the beliefs of the Conservative Party.
And the retirement law is OPTIONAL not forced retirement after 20 years of serving the community for the police department.

I believe it was the Sag Harbor Police Department and the Harbor Master that pulled the man out of the water. " Nov 6, 11 8:59 PM
One part time officer working alone? No wonder why there have been a recent string of burglaries in the village. I'm not sure if anyone has been spending time in Sag recently but the town is a zoo. Great for businesses, but clearly makes a strong argument for a properly staffed police force. Because as we all know, most of these lovely people who visit our area do not police themselves.
