Dems tap Woodhouse for Southold Trustee race


The Southold Democratic Party has selected Jeri Woodhouse of Orient to face incumbent GOP Trustee Mike Domino in November’s special election.

No stranger to town government, Ms. Woodhouse served as chairwoman of the town Planning Board during the administration of former supervisor Josh Horton. She ran unsuccessfully for a seat on the Town Board in 2009.

She owns and operates the Taste of the North Fork food business in Cutchogue.

“Jeri is a strong candidate with a background of Democratic Party participation, community affairs and is a business woman,” said Art Tillman, Southold Democratic chairman. “We are most pleased Jeri has decided to  run.”

She’ll be up against Mike Domino of Southold, who in January was appointed to a one-year Trustee term to fill the vacancy left when GOP Trustee Jill Doherty was elected town councilwoman. Mr. Domino is a retired science teacher and former president of the North Fork Environmental Council.
