Vote In November

My heartfelt thanks to all the people who took the time to vote during early voting and on June 22. I also extend my thanks to all the poll workers who did their very best to ensure a fair outcome.

Our right to vote is one of the fundamental cornerstones of our democracy. It guarantees that each and every citizen has the right to participate and choose their elected officials. Primary elections give the opportunity for the people to chose their candidates, as opposed to relying on party bosses.

In the primary election, I sought to give everyone the right to choose their candidates. Judges are not politicians and, for these reasons, many states do not have judicial candidates run on “party lines.”

I would be honored to continue to serve as your town justice, and I am asking for your vote in the general election on Tuesday, November 2, with early voting starting on Saturday, October 23. Impartiality, fairness and a solid understanding of the law are some of the qualities I have brought to the bench for the past 24 years. I have the experience, the integrity and the knowledge to ensure justice for all.

On Monday, July 5, let’s all join together in saluting our veterans and celebrating our independence! The annual parade in Southampton Village will honor our health care workers and first responders for their valor during the pandemic. Wave the flag proudly and give thanks.

Barbara Wilson

Southampton Town Justice
