Village Trustee Murray confirms he’s running for re-election

Greenport Village Board Trustee Dave Murray has decided to run for re-election in March, The Suffolk Times confirmed Monday.

Mr. Murray, who was first elected in 2011, said he’s seeking a second four-year term because he wants to continue to improve the village’s quality of life with projects like park and marina improvements.

“I feel like I’ve worked really well with this board,” Mr. Murray said after Monday’s work session. “The village is running really well and we’ve got a great team here. I’d like to still be a part of it.”

In addition to Mr. Murray’s seat, Trustee George Hubbard and Mayor David Nyce’s terms are up.

Mr. Nyce has said he doesn’t plan to run for re-election. Mr. Hubbard, who also serves as deputy mayor, has confirmed he’s vying for the mayor’s seat.

So far, one Greenport resident has announced a run for trustee. Doug Roberts of Sixth Street said he hopes to improve communication between village government and the public if he is elected.

No one has submitted petitions to run for office as of Monday, village clerk Sylvia Pirillo said.

The election is scheduled for March 18.
