Lady Sharks advance, will face East Hampton in county finals

I would like to point out that if you do not enforce town codes it will lead to more issues, whether it be violations or crimes. In fact the “Broken Windows Theory” which was extremely effective in NYC during the 1990’s implies that if you enforce small codes/laws it will prevent bigger infractions from happening.
I would also like to point out that the Southampton Town PBA is not backing Lt. Hughes, they are backing Bridget Fleming. Why? Mrs. Fleming is willing to negotiate a pay raise for them. She got the PBA’s endorsement, just as Mrs. Throne-holst did.
It was also admitted that the council position Mrs. Fleming is running for will be a Part-Time Job. A Part-Time Job that will cost the tax payers $60,000 a year. I work three part-time jobs for about $20,000 and I know there are plenty of young college students out there like myself that wishes they too can make $60,000 part-time. Mrs. Fleming did state that she is very dedicated and will work very hard for the Southampton Town residents… Part-Time.
Mrs. Fleming also stated that to stimulate the economy she would push for green jobs and eco-friendly contracting. Well that’s all well and good, when your husband is a contractor of eco-friendly construction. Lt. Hughes wants to support local, small businesses with tax incentives. This will allow small businesses to open or existing local business to expand in our fine township. Lt. Hughes’s plan will push the economy forward, not an agenda.
Lastly, Plaxico Burris, as a member of the NY Giants, shot himself in the leg with an illegal handgun. Does that mean everyone on the NY Giants has illegal handgun? Does that mean everyone on the NY Giants has the gall to go to a club toting an illegal weapon? No. Lt. Hughes is on the Republican team but that does not make him the reason why there was money mismanagement, blaming him for that or taking it out on him for that is childish. Lt. Hughes is a true Patriot. He has my endorsement and my vote.

Bridget Fleming wins vacant Southampton Town Board seat

She had more funding plain and simple. I never saw one Vote for Huges sign on the side of the road, not one. I couldn't even find his website until halfway throught the campaign but, I found hers just fine. I am truly sorry for the Town of Southampton at this point. It is truly a great place to live but if you go against a straight forward politician then I'm really not sure where your head is at. I mean all people ask for is a straight shooter and you get one, and then vote in a lawyer. Well I will guarantee the cops get a raise, there will be more legislation towards "green" projects such as home energy consumption and housing and higher taxes. I know the majority still lies conservative and I am a conservative but I just don’t see a point in what she was going for.... Instead of a full-time invested council man, you got a part-time lawyer part-time family member and a zero time council woman... I extend my best wishes to Ms. Flemming and hope she does a fantastic job, but deep down I am truly disappointed with the outcome and most assuredly you will be also." Mar 10, 10 1:18 AM
