Randy Altschuler, a Republican challenging Democratic U.S. Representative Tim Bishop for his seat this November, will be a guest speaker at a luncheon hosted by the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce later this month.

The chamber will also host a luncheon with Mr. Bishop next month, according to Marina Van, the chamber’s executive director.

The purpose of the luncheons are to give the chamber’s members access to candidates and lawmakers, she said. A lunch with Mr. Bishop last drew an audience of approximately 40 people, she said.

The lunch with Mr. Altschuler will take place on July 26 at the Hamptons Players Club on Montauk Highway in East Hampton from noon to 2 p.m. The fee for the luncheon is $45. All are welcome to attend, as long as a reservation is submitted to Ms. Van by July 18 at 324-0362.

The lunch with Mr. Bishop is scheduled for August 14 although a venue hasn’t yet been selected, she said.
