David E. Eagan, who is running unopposed for an additional three-year term on the Wainscott School Board, on which he serves as president, has refused to comment on his having been charged with criminal tax fraud, saying everything he had to say was in the introduction to an informational brochure sent to taxpayers about the forthcoming vote on the district’s proposed budget.
John Catsimatidis, the owner of the grocery chain Gristede Foods, made a six-figure donation this week to the Bridgehampton Child Care and Recreational Center.
Mr. Catsimatidis, who lives in Quogue and Manhattan, gave $105,000 to restore and refurbish one of the center’s four buildings. Its 12-acre property is just off the Sag Harbor Turnpike.
Earlier this spring, the nonprofit reached out to Mr. Catsimatidis, who also heads the Red Apple Group, a real estate company, to ask for his support.
