To the Editor:

The elevation of Al Krupski from Southold Town Board to Ed Romaine’s county Legislative seat was an unusual example of practical and productive government.

Al will bring sensible, beneficial North Fork policies to the Legislature, which is just what we want.

Now the question is, where do we find Al’s replacement?

There is so much political thinking in town government that pressure to replace him with a standard “property rights, right wing” Republican will be hard to avoid. But in fairness to the North Fork it would be correct to replace Al with someone of similar views and experience.

After all, he was voted onward and upward by his supporters. Shouldn’t those supporters get as close as we can come to an Al Krupski clone as a Southold Town replacement?

To the Editor:

The residents of the Town of Southold have elected an extremely competent supervisor in Scott Russell. I think it would behoove the two party leaders to step aside and let Scott and the Town Board decide who should replace Al Krupski.

They are the ones who will have to work with this individual who will, hopefully, want to follow Al’s lead and do what is best for our town and not their party of choice.

Lauren Grant, New Suffolk

To the Editor:

I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to Al Krupski as the new legislator representing the 1st Legislative District.

The district and its residents have always meant a great deal to me and I look forward to working with Legislator Krupski to advance the priorities and concerns of the residents of the district.

Again, my best wishes to Legislator Krupski.

Ed Romaine, Farmingville

Mr. Romaine left his 1st Legislative seat when he was elected supervisor of Brookhaven Town.
