What’s The Rush?

What’s The RushEast Quogue, what’s the rush?

Vote “no” to incorporation until we know: Who will run the village until the village government is established? Who will run for election to be the volunteer mayor and trustees? We need to know who they are, their qualifications, their prior public service and business experience, their visions for East Quogue, their agenda, how long they have lived in East Quogue.

Because these elected officials will appoint village committee chairs. Because these elected officials will hire a village tax collector and building department staff. Because these elected officials will take the next two years to decide the future of East Quogue — how and at what cost (our taxes) they will provide police protection, road maintenance, and access to beaches, the bay and parks, and other services and amenities currently provided by the Town of Southampton.

We also should know how long each member of the East Quogue Village Exploratory Committee has lived in East Quogue. We owe it to ourselves, our families, and our neighbors to know before we incorporate. Vote “no” to uncertainty. Let’s wait until we know.
