Questions for Village Candidates

Wed, 04/29/2020 - 11:46

Members of the Village Preservation Society have asked the three candidates for East Hampton Village mayor and the five vying for two open trustee seats in the June 16 election to fill out a questionnaire explaining their positions on regulating short-term rentals, curbing noise from aircraft that use the East Hampton Airport, and improving traffic flow, among other issues. Their answers have been posted on the preservation society’s website.

The mayoral candidates are Barbara Borsack, the deputy mayor, Arthur Graham, a trustee, and Jerry Larsen, a former East Hampton Village police chief.

The trustee candidates running with Ms. Borsack on the Elms Party Line are Mayor Richard Lawler, who was appointed in January to fill out the term of Paul F. Rickenbach Jr. and is seeking his fourth term as trustee, and Ray Harden, a co-owner of the Ben Krupinski building company, who is vice chairman of the village’s zoning board of appeals.

Mr. Graham’s Fish Hooks Party running mate is David Driscoll, who served in the New York Police Department for 38 years and was a longtime co-owner of the Chowder Bowl snack bar at Main Beach.

Mr. Larsen’s New Town Party running mates are Sandra Melendez, an attorney who is seeking to be the first Latina to serve on the village board, and Christopher Minardi, a lifelong village resident, a member of the village Z.B.A., and a sales director at New York Title Abstract Services.
