“Marie is a tireless worker who follows town government and school boards closely,” said town Democratic Chairman Art Tillman. “She’s a totally involved civic person.”
Ms. Domenici was the first chairperson of the town’s renewable energy committee, which drafted the town code permitting wind turbines on agricultural lands. She previously worked as a senior project manager for American Express and most recently served as an energy educator in the solar energy industry.
Two years ago she ran unsuccessfully on the Democratic line for a seat on the Town Board.
“This is about being someone who’s involved in the community and if I can help people count me in,” she said.
The Democrats chose several candidates for town elected positions during the party’s convention Wednesday, but are still looking for another assessor, highway superintendent, Fishers Island justice and town clerk.
The Southold Democratic Party filled one of the vacancies in its 2013 town election slate Friday, choosing Mattituck resident Marie Domenici to run for town assessor.
