Primaries in Two Parties

Primary elections on Tuesday are quiet here, with only two political parties asking voters to make decisions ahead of the general election in November.

Southampton Town residents belonging to the Conservative and Working Families Parties have a choice to make about a candidate for town justice. Andrea Schiavoni, now in her eighth year on the Southampton bench, is seeking a second term. She is running on the Conservative and Working Families lines, but was not endorsed by the Republican Party, whose candidate is Ernest R. Wruck. Mr. Wruck is challenging Ms. Schiavoni on both the Conservative and Working Families lines.

Justice Schiavoni, a North Haven resident, was challenged for some nominations in 2008, but prevailed on the Independence and Working Families lines. In 2012, she was nominated by all parties, including Republican, and ran unopposed.

Mr. Wruck, an Eastport resident, is a partner at Wruck & Wallace, a Patchogue legal firm. He has 30 years’ experience in estate administration, planning, and litigation and has served as an attorney for the Suffolk County public administrator, handling estates with unknown or missing heirs.

Conservative Party members in East Hampton and Southampton are being asked to vote for 12 members of the party’s state committee from among 24 candidates. They also can choose two of four candidates as delegates to the 10th judicial district convention.

Among the candidates for the committee are Brian Gilbride, a longtime member of the Sag Harbor Village Board and a former mayor, who is also running to be a convention delegate, and Jeremy D. Brandt, a Hampton Bays resident who made a bid against Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. in 2012, though he withdrew from the race before the election. Trevor M. Darrell, an East Hampton attorney, is running as an alternate delegate.
