Appoint a Democrat

The Southold Democratic Party requests the Southold Town Board appoint a Democrat to complete the term of Democrat Councilman Al Krupski, newly elected to the Suffolk County Legislature.

Al Krupski was elected as a Democrat by the voters of Southold Town. Al’s vacancy on the Town Board will result in the entire board’s being members of one political party. In fairness to the 4,419 registered Democrats, independents and Republicans who thought it wise not to have all members of the Town Board be of one party, I ask the board to consider the fairness of our request.

Southold Democrats are able to suggest a number of well qualified individuals and we ask they be considered in the appointment for the unexpired term of Al Krupski.

Art Tillman
chairman, Southold Democratic Party
