After five years of having the honor to represent Southampton as a member of the Town Council, this week I launched a new effort – my campaign for Suffolk County Legislature for the Second District. Last evening, I was pleased to accept the Suffolk County Democratic Committee's nomination for the position.
For the past five years, I have worked hard with you and colleagues in government to bring fiscal responsibility back to Southampton, to defend our environment and natural resources, and to raise the ethical bar in our government. We have accomplished many milestones during that time: restoring Southampton’s bond rating to “AAA” (among the highest in the state); pioneering efforts to improve and protect the quality of our water; and establishing new ethical standards in local government
To build on these gains, I am now asking for your support in my run for County Legislature. It is critical for East End communities to be vigorously represented, as hundreds of millions of dollars will be allocated in coming years on the county level to protect our bays and our water supply. Our work continues to right Suffolk County’s fiscal ship while maintaining accountability, transparency and integrity along the way.
As both a Councilwoman in Southampton, and a former prosecutor who defended taxpayers against fraud and fought for justice for the most vulnerable, I will continue to be in a unique position to stand up for our community. I am also thankful for the many established relationships I have in and out of government, which will allow me to be an effective voice for our community.
It’s my strong hope we can continue to work together to benefit our communities, our families and our future. Please be sure to like my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter to stay up to date on our efforts.
I look forward to seeing you on the campaign trail!
