How it Was, How it Will Be

    Candidates for East Hampton Town Board will share their views on preservation following a screening at LTV tonight of a vintage film by the jazz age illustrator Hamilton King.

    The free program, from 5 to 7 p.m., is hosted by the East Hampton Historical Society and LTV. The film, which includes footage of East Hampton in the 1920s and 1930s, will serve as the springboard for a panel discussion with the candidates on the future of preservation in the town.

    LTV is at 75 Industrial Road in Wainscott.


Behan Endorses Schneiderman

    John Behan of Montauk, a former state assemblyman and former chairman of the East Hampton Town Republican Committee, has endorsed Jay Schneiderman in his final bid for Suffolk County legislator, Mr. Schneiderman’s campaign announced this week.

    “I’m proud to have Jay Schneiderman as my county legislator because he has always fought for what’s important to East End residents and has been a strong advocate for veterans,” Mr. Behan said in a release. Mr. Behan, a decorated Marine Corps veteran, is also a former director of the state’s Division of Veterans Affairs.

    Mr. Schneiderman, first elected legislator in 2003 on the Republican and Conservative tickets, is running this year on the Democratic, Working Families, and Independence Party lines. Because of term-limit restrictions, if elected, this would be his sixth and final term.
