    IMG_3880Members of the East Hampton Environmental Coalition joined residents at the Amagansett Free Library last Saturday to hear from the candidates for Town Board about where they stand on the environment. The room was almost filled to capacity, clearly highlighting how important the environment is in this election.

    Democratic candidates Supervisor Larry Cantwell, Board Members Sylvia Overby and Peter Van Scoyoc and Republican Candidates Thomas Knobel, Margaret Turner, answered almost 20 questions about climate adaptation, septic and wastewater issues, aquifer protection, estuaries, clean energy, dark skies, and quiet skies. IMG_3888

    These forums allow the public to learn more about their elected officials and candidates running for office. Thank you to the EHEC who co-sponsored the event and the candidates for participating.
