    The East Hampton Town Republican Committee re-elected Kurt Kappel and Tom Knobel as its chairman and vice chairman at its annual meeting last Thursday. Richard Gherardi will be the committee’s treasurer and Deborah Schwartz will be the secretary for the 2013-14 year.


    Republican candidates for East Hampton Town Board, town justice, town clerk, highway superintendent, and trustee will be at Cittanuova restaurant in East Hampton tomorrow from 6 to 8 p.m. to meet the people. Voters can toast, question, or chat with Councilman Dominick Stanzione and Fred Overton, who are running for town board, Carl Irace, who wants to be the next town justice, and Carole Brennan and Steve Lynch, who are running unopposed for town clerk and highway superintendent, respectively, as well as all nine Republican trustee hopefuls.

    Also tomorrow, East Hampton’s Democratic candidates along with Representative Tim Bishop will be at D’Canela restaurant in Amagansett for a happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. The event, which includes cocktail snacks and an open bar, is open to all, but an extra effort has been made to reach Spanish-speaking voters, with an invitation sent out and posted in both English and Spanish.
