The South Fork’s two candidates for the Suffolk County Legislature continued to clash this week over key issues that affect the region. Amos Goodman, a Republican, and Bridget Fleming, a Democrat who sits on the Southampton Town Board, traded assertions this week in an interview with The Star.
Eighteen candidates are vying to become East Hampton Town Trustees, whose nine members manage common lands on behalf of the public by virtue of the Dongan Patent of 1686. Those elected will serve a two-year term.
While observing that both East Hampton Town and state polices favor so-called soft erosion control, a court magistrate said that an Army Corps determination had concluded that the project "does not run afoul of those restrictions.”
