Political candidates all across the board appeared on Monday at Ashawagh Hall under the auspices of the Springs Citizens Advisory Committee. They discussed their backgrounds and platforms, but dealt with a series of Springs-centric questions as well.
This election year, Bill Mott is trying to ascend the political ladder he’s been poised on for a long time.
A 28-year volunteer fireman with the Bridgehampton Fire Department, Mr. Mott has served for 12 years as an East Hampton Town trustee and made a go at the Republican nomination for town board once before.
He was drawn into local government 14 years ago by the late Jim McCaffrey, a town trustee who became his “political stepping stone.”
