The Mattituck American Legion Post No. 861 has struggled with low numbers in recent years and with a small group of active members, the post is attempting one last push to build participation.

Members will host a free dinner later this month for any interested veteran or children of veterans in a last-ditch effort to bolster its roster with new names.

To the editor:

This is in regard to Grant Parpan’s recent column on the June Southold Democratic Committee meeting.

Our Meet-the-Candidates meeting was open to all, as are most of our meetings. We welcome the public and press. Open discussion makes a difference, as our candidate Judge Bill Price noted after attending one recently.

I ask Mr. Parpan and more senior staffers of The Suffolk Times how many Republican committee meetings have they been invited to recently or over the years?

A comment I made at the last meeting and not reported reflects the feelings of many: Southold Town government is not a club, nor is it the extension of a country club and as Lincoln said, “It is a government of the people, by the people and for the people.” Government belongs to all of us.

This year’s Democratic candidates represent the wide age, occupational and life experiences of those living here. Young people, seniors, natives and newcomers all are welcome and all are encouraged to participate.

Balance does make a difference.

Art Tillman, chairman, Southold Democratic Committee
