Kabot Says She Wants To Run For Southampton Town Supervisor Again

I wonder, if she fails to win the screening, will she try and force a primary again, or run as a write-in candidate again?. If she doesn't win the screening, all she can accomplish by trying the other 2 options, is the securing of Throne Holsts 3rd victory. " Mar 19, 13 3:42 PM

Developers Say Lagging Economy Is To Blame For Delaying Projects In Westhampton Beach

A shame. Almost 5 years after the collapse of the financial industry, our local economy still suffers. Is this type of living "sustainable" for the local community? Local governments must reach out to the business owners, developers, and entrepreneurs who take risk, to seek ways to advance.. NOT delay .. responsible projects that provide jobs and are accretive to the property tax rolls. Economic growth means growth of property tax rolls INSTEAD of higher taxes. These unfinished lots exist as "blight" which sucks value out of the surrounding properties and is a lose-lose for all.

Sagaponack Village Police Department, With Wilson As Chief, A Possibility

Classic. Does Wilson still get his massive pension that was re-striked after serving 18 months as the Southampton Town Chief, along with his new $250,000 salary as Sag Chief? Wow.... that could equate to a half million a year in income, and I'm not even counting those amazing health benefits. I'm curious, what's Sagaponack thinking, when Sag Harbor is considering closing their force and contracting with Southampton? Does Sagaponack really think the economics will work in their favor forever? " Jul 20, 13 10:55 AM

Female Police Sergeant Files Discrimination Lawsuit Against Southampton Town

what a concidence ..all the targets of the discrimination lawsuit are Republicans. We have had a female Town Supervisor since 2007 ( the most powerfully elected position in this Town) , and we had a female Town Board majority since 2011. Throne Holst, Scalera, and Fleming. So a female Town Board majority committed discrimination against female police promotion candidates? " Apr 30, 14 2:05 PM

Gregor Says He Will Remove 'Sister Jackie's Way' Sign From Water Mill Street

How does this issue, or its discussion, help the taxpayer in any way ? This is a complete waste of intellectual energy and not what our paid elected officials are supposed to be engaged in.

Man Beaten With Handgun During Bridgehampton Home Invasion

Second incident in two weeks. Guy was mugged at knifepoint in the other one. These have to be drug related incidents. Both victims were most likely robbed for drugs. The East End Drug Task Force has to sweep in there and clean it up. " Aug 14, 14 1:15 PM

south of highway NYCers are not registered voters out here and had absolutely nothing to do with this vote. Maybe ....gasp ... the Teachers Union can come forward with some ...wait for it.. concessions on health care and defined benefit pensions, which none of the voters in private industry have ..to help the children

We need to re-address the principle behind our "obligation" to have US taxpayers pay for the education of illegal immigrants. Charities can pick up that slack, or illegals can return home. Does a US citizen have an obligation to provide a non-US citizen with a free education ? Why? Why stop at illegals inside our borders- doesn't our obligation extend to Ciudad Juarez on the other side of the border too? Why penalize poor children who didn't have the money to pay the human smugglers to get across the border? And please don't tell me these people pay their taxes. Folks- very simple- you need a Social Security number to pay taxes or have an employer deduct taxes. You need to be a Citizen to have a Social Security number. Period. Paying sales tax to the County at the 7-11 doesn't qualify you as a taxpayer. Progressives- please stop telling us illegal immigrants pay taxes. They do NOT. They receive more benefits and free education than American Citizens do. This just isn't fair when the American Citizen middle class is living month to month, completely left out of the Federal Reserve-asset-inflating gift to the rich. " Nov 19, 14 8:16 PM

Fire In East Hampton Garage Spreads Rapidly, Destroys House

so were the people living there renters? A suspicious fire in a home owned by a known Pro-Choice activist, starting in a garage where the 4 adult renters "had trouble calling the fire dept. due to lousy cell service" Indeed... The downside of using airbnb.com." Jan 13, 15 7:43 PM

Hampton Bays Ku Klux Klan Member Claims Town Police Harrassed Him

he'll win his case. KKK will pay to sue Town, Town will back off quietly. But I highly doubt his " we don't hurt anyone nor try to hurt anyone mantra" BS. KKK preaches expulsion of all non white races from US soil. Hitler style. " Apr 6, 15 6:09 PM

Flanders Residents Continue To Trash Garbage District

whats the main reason for a Town run garbage district? why does Town need to provide these services rather than let people get private service? this is more of a question than a challenge

Bridgehampton Gateway Could Be Approved By End Of This Year

how about affordable housing for local workforce middle class. subsidized rents in return for Town tax abatements and county/state/fed subsidies. Yes a developer makes money too, thats how you transfer the risk away from the taxpayer and accomplish a social goal without sending a taxpayer cent. " Apr 23, 15 1:32 PM

Neighbor To Challenge East Hampton Town On Breakers Motel Permits

Tell that to the little taxpayers. Connected politicians see little obstacle at the Town Board level. The common voter gets fined for parking a work truck in his driveway, a vehicle vital to doing his job and providing for his family.

The Story Behind Eric Fischl's 'Tumbling Woman'

Too difficult to look at that image. Everyone knows what happened that day regarding those who jumped to their death. They don't need to be reminded by an artist. Its a graphic scene too far. It simply can't be healed and throwing it in the faces of New Yorkers on a daily basis does nothing to heal. " Sep 11, 15 9:20 PM
