    IMG_3905Why does NYLCVEF host forums and not debates? Let our senior vice president, Josh Klainberg, explain: There are a lot of debates that happen out there and as watchers of debates style trumps substance and you kind of lose what the issues are all about.

    That’s why the candidates for Southold Town Supervisor took turns answering questions from the audience and moderator last night at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Cutchogue — so they could really get down to the issues. The candidates, incumbent Scott Russell and challenger Damon Rallis tackled complicated issues like wastewater treatment, water IMG_3908quality, and natural resource protection in front of the packed crowd.

    Our co-host for the evening was the North Fork Environmental Council and their president, Bill Toedter, moderated the discussion. “We think it’s very important to compare apples to apples about what people are saying about these issues and for you to come away with your own conclusions,” Toedter said when addressing the audience.
