Election 2013 — Here we come.
Suffolk County Legis. Jay Schneiderman looks like he will soon have the East Hampton Republicans nomination for town supervisor. The Republicans took a formal vote last week, but are waiting for a full slate to make an official announcement (Schneiderman was out of the country and unavailable for comment).
But the East Hampton Democrats are holding their first screening on Sunday, so it still remains to be seen who they'll nominate.
It's no secret that Larry Cantwell, who is retiring from his position as East Hampton Village Administrator in July, is considering a run. Zachary Cohen, who only lost to current town supervisor Bill Wilkinson by 15 votes during the last go-around, is a strong possibility, as well. Councilman Peter Van Scoyoc, just elected to the town board two years ago, has also been suggested.
If you're a Democrat, we want to know who you'd rather see get the nomination? Someone else entirely? If you're a member of another political party, and you're already thinking about strategy, let us know that too. Leave a comment below.
