Election 2021: Two candidates for Town Clerk



Candace Hall


Hamlet: Greenport 

Occupation: Insurance broker and small business owner

Party lines: Democratic

About her: Ms. Hall, 32, is a small business owner, licensed insurance broker and native Greenporter whose large extended family is deeply rooted in community outreach. After spending some years teaching preschool in the Washington, D.C. metro area, she returned to Greenport determined to be part of change.

Her pitch: Ms. Hall said she comes from a compassionate, community-minded and service-oriented family — values she carries with her in her professional life and career. She said she has extensive background in administration and client services that has allowed her to flourish and lead a team that manages a substantial portfolio with the foremost companies in the industry. Her success as an insurance broker, she noted, hinges on her ability to navigate complex regulations and guidelines, while managing important documents with attention to detail. She said her dedication to uplifting our youth began with her work as a preschool teacher and has transitioned into fundraising and producing events for the community.

In her words: “Southold Town deserves a fresh perspective to build on the foundation set before me. Making space for leadership that represents all members of our community is vital. I have the right combination of lived experience, values and qualifications to best serve as the next town clerk.”
