I’ve chosen NewTown Party as the name under which I will run for Mayor of East Hampton Village. I want to break from the last 30 years that has created a “Village of No” and help a commercial core that must be revitalized in order to grow living wages for year-round working families. I want our name to represent a break from the past, with a plan for today and a vision for tomorrow.

Why Am I Running for Mayor?

I have decided to run for village mayor because I believe I have many ideas that will help the village’s residents, businesses, employees and the tourists that visit us every summer.

What is refreshing about village elections, is that there are no major political parties such as Democrats and Republicans, but our own parties made from independent ideas to help the residents of the village.

I am a registered Independence Party member. However, I’ve always voted for the person who is the best qualified to accomplish the task. I believe this next election is a turning point for the future of our village, and I am the best suited with the most experience to run this village.

Why am I starting so early?

I honestly would like to meet every voter and have a conversation about the future of our village.  I also want to meet our second homeowners and many of our frequent tourists this summer and get their opinions on how we can best serve them as well.  This is the last summer before the election and the only time to do so.

I look forward to meeting you and talking with you.

Best,

Jerry
