Southampton Town Board candidates face off in final debate

fidelis
I don't know what radio or TV station you watch or listen to but the State of NY is bankrupt they are withholding our NYS Refunds to help sure up there own budgets.
As far as the Feds they are nothing but trillions of debt. So get real, with this pipe dream of Bishop or Thiele getting any money for Bridget to get the economy moving. Again the only thing who is moving is Bishop right out of office in November. " Feb 26, 10 4:22 PM

Because Bridget is an attorney, that does not automatically give her the experience or qualify her to be a town board member.
I believe Mr. Hughes gave his real opinion on hiring halls; he is not in favor of one if it would cost the tax payers any money. He said right out front NO. It was Bridget who said in the last election that she would like to see one but this time danced around the issue. She is a phony just like ATH who will give this town away.

To compare the past supervisor of East Hampton who was a retired police Lieutenant with Lieutenant Bill Hughes is just ridicules. The past supervisor of E.H. was a democrat who spent, spent, spent and was dishonest.

In my opinion the democrats are looking for is some kind of a majority, one more dem on the TB will still not give them any majority. It is them who are looking for a one party rule. From what I have read in the papers and watch on TV, ATH seems to have gotten Nancy Graboski on board with her. Don't do this Nancy, don't trust ATH and don't forget how she tried to block your resolution last month. The only reason she said she would discuss it and work things out was because she never expected you to expose her or make an issue in public at a work session. ATH does not take criticism very well in person or in the papers . She is playing you to push her own agenda.

Does any one know if the health insurance part ($30,000 per the press) of this sustainability coordinator position is allowed to be paid out of this grant money or will the town have to pick up the cost?
Also, all those that are still complaining about the Berkoski appointment to the planning board, I don't remember seeing any complaints when the female democract was re-appointed by the the board. BTW the rep's voted yes to re-appoint her so come on, stop the whining.
Some of you just wont be happy until the democrats have the majority on all the boards and screw things up like in Washington, spending your way to prosperity" Mar 2, 10 9:45 PM

Local politicians consider congressional campaign

Tell me why was Tim Bishop qualified to be a congressman? " Mar 5, 10 5:37 PM

Southampton Town Board candidates face off in final debate

I don't know where you got the 23% number from, but this is what I found from the 2007 census
Southampton Town
Republican - 48.521%
Democrats - 49.460%" Mar 5, 10 6:17 PM

In my opinion the SHPBA endorsed Flemming because of ATH, they endorsed her and over donated to her campaign in Nov. I'm sure they think they stand a better change to get whatever they want should Flemming win.
Also, don't forget the PBA sued the Superiors Officers Union because they separated from the PBA. The negitive1/4 page ad the PBA paid for (I think) was payback. Bill Hughes was part of the Superiors Officers Union, no love there between them. We are so much better off with Bill Hughes he is a man who will not vote only on party lines he is his own man.
Bridget on the other hand will just vote with ATH just like she said she would." Mar 5, 10 6:28 PM

Local politicians consider congressional campaign

Razza: This is part of a job description for a college provost this hardly qualifies anyone with this experience to run to congressman.
BTW as far as I'm concerned Bishop has not made any decisions, he just votes with Obama or with party lines. He's got to go in November
Important external relationships: Students and their families, organisations and other individuals who are users or potential users of College. Emergency services. Local residents.
Main purpose of job: To have ultimate responsibility for the character, discipline, well-being and development of the College community and for co-ordinating and representing the views and interests of its members.
Do you see anything about foreign policy in the job discription? Health care reform or economy issues? As far a global warming most of know that is just bogus BS but Al Gore (flying around in his private jet) made millions trying to get people to buy in. What a flawed science give me a break.

Special election today for Southampton Town Board seat

DJII13 The conservatives really screwed your candidate, if Hughes had the 2nd line he would have blew Fleming away. Eddie Walsh is a disgrace. " Mar 9, 10 10:22 PM

Bridget Fleming wins vacant Southampton Town Board seat

She had a good line of BS, I hope those that did not vote are happy. Get ready for higher taxes, and you better not complain if you could not be bothered to even vote. " Mar 9, 10 10:28 PM

She won because of the 2nd line, without the Independence party line she would have lost. As you can see Hughes received more R votes than her D votes.
So don't ever think it had anything to do with having integrity. " Mar 10, 10 12:11 AM

To Westendoftown
I couldn't agree more, with all due respect to Bill Hughes being a very good man.
It was Marietta Seaman and some of her republican cronies that caused this debacle. Help from Seaman is like the kiss of death, no one has any respect for the former town clerk. She was elected and then left for an up island job paying 150k. The robo call with her voice was a waste of time and money.
The only saving grace is that the Reps still have the majority.
These dems are scary with their liberal agenda." Mar 10, 10 6:45 PM

DJII13
I have no ax to grind, this is just my opinion. Again, with all do respect to Mr. Hughes, I believe Ms. Molinaro would have been the winner last night if she had gotten the nomination. With 3 lines she could not have lost. Why did the conservative's leave the line blank? I don't look at the situation as annointing Thiele's hand picked candidate. I look at it as a win for a republican. So you would rather cut your nose off to spite your face? " Mar 10, 10 8:38 PM

I understand it would have been a gamble, but one thing for sure Bridget will never be on the rep team.
Moving forward, Bishop has to go for sure, maybe Thiele too. " Mar 10, 10 10:16 PM

How many times have Nuzzi and Malone gave a no vote that involved party politics? Out of all the resolutions that have passed in the last 2.5 months how many resolutions did not pass because of a no vote or dead lock of a 2-2 vote. Also, how many times did Nuzzi vote WITH ATH in the last 2 years.
You guys just won't be happy until this liberal democrat agenda of ATH and Bridget ruin this town. The members on the TB can't always agree on issues. Did ATH and Nuzzi always agree with the past supervisor? Anyone care to answer?
Ms. ATH ran on consensus building and bringing parties together? But all she has done is complain how obstructive the Rep have been and how the TB needs balance. Is that consensus building?????
Problem here is that ATH can't get along with others that disagree with her." Mar 11, 10 6:00 PM

Southampton Town Code enforcement busts motel

The owner of this property is a slumlord, this is a motel that should not be rented as apartments. I could care less how much his property taxes are, if he can't afford to keep this place he should sell it. If you have ever driven passed this place its a rundown dump.
I hope the town fine's him thousands of dollars. The article states that some motel rooms have no heat, families are living in these rooms with children. What a disgrace, close this place down now." Mar 11, 10 6:44 PM

Bridget Fleming wins vacant Southampton Town Board seat

LOL I didn't loose. Won't don't you try answering some of my questions yearrounder.
I'm sure the liberals will turn this town around but only for the worse outcome ever." Mar 11, 10 7:55 PM

Bishop will vote yes on health care reform bill

Pray that this health care bill fails. If it should pass, it’s the ends of having any new good doctors going into the profession.
The government can't run anything, Medicare is broke and now some doctors are dropping Medicare patients because they pay peanuts. What good doctor will work for a $10 or $15 office visit?
This bill is not even passed, and now obama is looking to give amnesty to all illegally.
We all know who will be paying for them as well. That’s us the middle class.

" Mar 19, 10 9:52 PM

Wow Bishop read all 2000 + pages of this bill already and knows everything that's in it. Wasn't it just released? He is so full of it. He has no idea what he's voting yes for and could really care less." Mar 19, 10 10:09 PM

fcmcmann
I heard the same thing as teeteeme, student loans will be given from the government not from banks. Where do you get your lies from, channel CBS, NBC, CNN or ABC. If this was such a great health care bill why is Obama making deals on air force one and making threats to democrats who are on the fence, telling them they wont have any friends in the White House if they vote no on this bill. This president acts like a dictator and wants government to control everything our lives.
Can someone tell me what is SERVICE.org I heard a commercial on our local radio with Obama's voice encouraging our young people to sign up?
In just a few words the constutution was written so that rights of citizens would be clearly defined, and the role of Gov. would be limited
Any health care program that the gov. runs could never be any good. What good doctors will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to be educated and then be paid $15 for an office visit? The only people who will be well taken care of with a serious illness will be the very rich who can afford to private pay.
If this passes stay healthy, we will have very few doctors to take care of us when we are old or get a serious illness. " Mar 20, 10 8:40 PM

I hope those that are in favor of this health care bill know that the cost is 1/6th of the economy. ONE SIXTH people. This is the start of the fall of this country. I do not want or need to be taken care by the gov. from cradle to grave. I want to work for what I have and do not want any hand out from anyone. I do not believe in re-distribution of wealth.
Another point, how will the gov. tell a private ins comp that parents must cover children to age 26?
Why is Pelosi telling members of congress that they must vote yes even if they are in danger of not being re-elected? Why is she telling them they must vote yes because Obama presidency is in jeopardy?
What is going on people, wake up.
In Obama's own words this is a "slow transition" (and just a beginning), our government wants to take over health care and education. Does anyone get it, this current gov. (president) wants to take over everything?

Councilwoman Fleming privately sworn in Tuesday; ceremonial swearing-in planned

Typical democrat comment "party of no". If someone disagrees now they are called the party of no. With all the resolutions that have passed the past 3 months how many failed or were obstructive (as you say) because Nuzzi and Malone disagreed?
Also, I believe you do expect (and want) the Rep to embrace a down-the-line lefty democratic agenda or you would not have made that comment of the party of no.
Why shouldn't Bridge and ATH just try to work with the rep on the board.
That's what ATH campaigned on, being able to reach across the isle. I don't see how she has reached out. Her problem is if members of the board disagree they being obstructive. Did she always agree with member's past and present? ATH's problem is that she cannot get along with others that disagree with her.
BTW I can't remember seeing any posts from you in the past when Nuzzi did vote with her.
The republican's have the majority so get over it. Maybe you will have to wait until 2012 to have a real majority, or maybe not. " Mar 20, 10 10:32 PM

Bishop will vote yes on health care reform bill

Don't fool yourself, only if the government health plan approves medical care (if they deem the person worth it) will these sick people ever see any medical services. " Mar 20, 10 10:45 PM

If this health care program passes at a cost of 1/6th (ONE SIXTH) of the economy the gov. is hiring 14,000 new IRS agenda to enforce the rules.
Someone said something about fear, you should be afraid, very afraid. This is first steps towards socialism.
Some of these people who probably have lived off the dole and been used to hand outs would be in favor of this bill.
Does anyone know what this SERVICE.ORG is, heard a commercial on WLNG with Obama voice encouraging our youth to sign up? " Mar 21, 10 5:58 PM

Councilwoman Fleming privately sworn in Tuesday; ceremonial swearing-in planned

1. I'm sorry to say I do not think that having a sustainability coordinator (even at no cost to the town.) is really all that important. Those that spoke were invited by ATH to speak in favor of the resolution. What was the democrat leader doing in attendance? Political leaders have no place in the Town Board room. BTW isn't this coming up for a vote again soon.

2. How many times did ATH not agree with a resolution (in the past) did she always agree with the past admin, was she being obstructive? I believe Nuzzi and Malone never said they did not want to reappoint her; they wanted to wait and see the results from the audit. The bottom line is Tamara Wright was appointed so this is a non-issue. Another non-issue that ATH made an issue out of.
BTW I don't think its proper to hire someone who is a personal friend.

3. This planning board issue is just sour grapes to you and other dem's because the republican's have the majority. I think this would not have been an issue if they agreed to hire a democrat. Ms. Graboski vote for this also, so is she also a broken-down truck in the middle of the road? I guess not as long as she votes with ATH and Bridget.
Come on Turkey people can see through what you and those like you are trying to do.

4. Some people that worked for the town lost jobs on January 1, 2010 due to the deficit that exits. The town has no money, town employees received a zero increase, now is the time to cut back by not making P/T staff F/T. As a taxpayer I agree with Nuzzi and Malone.

5. They did not give the Highway Superintendent more funds because he has a budget that so far has yet to be spent. Did they not say that the issue would be looked at a later date? That doesn't sound like a refusal to me.

All these example are not being obstructive, this is just spin that you who supports ATH (no matter what) uses to help ATH and now Bridget with her agenda.

Come on Turkey get real this town board does not always agree, that’s how it is.
What you would like to see is a democrat majority so that Ms. Anna can get what she wants.
A disagreement on 5 issues with all the issues that passed, in my opinion is not one bit obstructive.

One more thing Turkey

With free information from LIPA who needs a sustainability coordinator." Mar 21, 10 7:29 PM

Bishop will vote yes on health care reform bill

SH Native I guess you are one of those that has no health insurance.
You did not answer the question how much will this health care cost american's, we all know its not going to be free.
With the gov. running health care how long before its broke just like medicare. Do you really think for one minute that health services will not be limited and denied for the very sick(those that the gov think are hopeless) or the elderly?
BTW for me, I am not standing up for ins companies, I am standing up for my right to choose who insures me and my family." Mar 21, 10 7:39 PM

Councilwoman Fleming privately sworn in Tuesday; ceremonial swearing-in planned

I would think that the information that LIPA provides would be honest. Most people are aware what lacks in their homes as far as being heat efficient. Some people just can't afford to do repairs needed to make it more efficient even if the town did arrange a low interest rate with a local bank. This position is not needed period. With the current economy we do not need bigger gov. even if the position is paid with a grant for now. In my view this position will continue even after the grant ends, that's the problem.
I knew the answers to the questions I posed to you, I wanted you to list your issues because of how ridicules they are and not important to average taxpayer.
Out of about 300 resolutions that were voted on not all were just housekeeping and ministeral matters. Making changes to the Town Code by passing Local Laws or making changes to the Budget are not ministeral matters. Most of the resolutions include some spending of tax payer money and thats pretty darn important to me.
These 5 issues were important to you because its part of your candidates agenda. This is what I call grandstanding on your part and on the part of your candidates. " Mar 22, 10 8:33 PM
