Giving Back

My husband, Zach Epley, is not one to boast about the many acts of kindness, generosity and community outreach that he does on a daily basis for the village that he loves so much.

Since a young age, his family has always taught him the importance of giving back. If you know the Epley children, they are all outstanding members of our community who continue to find ways and time to get involved and lend a helping hand to Southampton Village.

My husband and I attended Southampton High School together, and I can personally testify to his early acts of community service and the strong start to what would become an impressive resume full of hard work, goals achieved and, most importantly, giving back. Zach’s plate is always full, because he is never willing to say no to someone in need of help, to a challenge left unmet or to a task left undone.

During the pandemic, while many of us were in crisis, my husband showed the pureness of his heart and his character more than ever. Zach was working seven days a week to help manage the overflow of people seeking treatment at Seafield Center, dealing with staff attendance issues, and an abundance of new protocols and restrictions due to COVID-19.

In addition to his full-time job, Zach was volunteering every Wednesday at Heart of the Hamptons and delivering groceries to the elderly through the Bridgehampton Childcare Center. Every Friday night, he’d rally our family to drive by the hospital and show gratitude to our health care heroes. Zach helped to provide our senior center with iPads so residents could have the chance to see their families when visitation was not an option during the pandemic.

Through some of our community’s toughest days, Zach continuously showed how reliable he is and how much he cares about the well-being of the village.

Most importantly, my husband always arrived home at the end of what felt like an endless day to greet me and our four young children with nothing but smiles and reassurance to us all that everything would be okay.

That’s what my husband does. He remains calm and dignified when you need him most. He is an outstanding member of this community who strives to set the bar high and with integrity. Any position that he holds is elevated by his intellect, commitment and abundance of knowledge.

For these reasons, I ask that you vote for my husband, Zach Epley, for village trustee. Not only because of the credentials that he holds but because of the man that he is.

Vote for Zach Epley to unite the village for the sake of its future.
