To enable voters to hear the candidates and question them about important issues before the Tuesday, September 12 Democratic Primary Election for East Hampton Town Board, the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons, along with the East Hampton GGG (Group for Good Government) and the East Hampton Library, are co-sponsoring a debate on Monday, August 28, 7 p.m. in the Library’s Baldwin Family Community Room.
The three candidates debating will be incumbent Kathee Burke-Gonzalez, Jeffrey Bragman and Zachary Cohen.
The two highest vote-getters in that September 12 primary election will then run on the Democratic Party line for East Hampton Town Board against the Republican and other candidates in the general election on November 7.
Format consists of the candidates making timed opening and closing statements and answering questions submitted by the GGG, the League, and the audience.
Moderators will be Estelle Gellman, co-president of the Hamptons League, and Arthur Malman, chairman of the GGG.
