Republicans Extend Screening

The East Hampton Town Republican Committee, which screened candidates for supervisor, town board, and other elected positions last weekend, will hold additional screenings on Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Amagansett. 

The committee will also interview potential candidates for town justice, tax assessor, and town trustee. Those interested in screening have been asked to contact Manny Vilar, the committee’s chairman, at 631-324-0528 or, or Kyle Ballou, the committee’s secretary, at 631-708-7777 or 

The committee has also rescheduled its nominating convention from tomorrow to Feb. 23 at 2 p.m., also at the American Legion Hall.

“Due to the astounding turnout, positive show of support from our community, and those who were not able to attend this past weekend, the East Hampton Town Republican Committee has decided to extend our screening process into next weekend to provide all those interested the opportunity to screen,” according to a statement the committee issued on Sunday. 

Election Day is Nov. 5.
