27Speaks on Jun 2, 2023

The Southampton Village Board is deeply divided in a way village residents have not seen before, with the four trustees in one camp and the mayor alone on an island. Each side is accusing the other of acting with political motivations in the weeks prior to the village election on June 16, as incumbent Mayor Jesse Warren and Trustee Bill Manger face off for the mayor’s seat and incumbent Trustees Roy Stevenson and Robin Brown face challengers Greg Centeno and Palmer Hudson, backed by the mayor. In this week’s 27Speaks, the editors comment on a recent Village Board meeting in which the conflict was on full display.
