The North Fork Civics hold the second of two candidate forums for Southold Town office at Poquatuck Hall on Village Lane in Orient on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 10 a.m. Come down to hear from the candidates in person, or follow on our YouTube livestream below.

This year’s candidates include Democratic Suffolk County Legislator Al Krupski and Republican Donald Grim, who runs a towing and recycling business and is a volunteer firefighter, for Town Supervisor.

There are two seats in the running for Town Board. Incumbent Councilwoman Jill Doherty is running on the Republican ticket, along with attorney Stephen Kiely. Incumbent Democratic Councilwoman Sarah Nappa is not seeking re-election. Gwynn Schroeder, a longtime aide to Mr. Krupski and volunteer for local environmental organizations, and former Mattituck-Cutchogue School District Superintendent Anne Smith are running on the Democratic ticket.

Incumbent Democratic Town Justice Dan Ross is running against Republican Brian Hughes, a former Town Justice who lost his seat to Mr. Ross by 27 votes four years ago.

Tax assessor candidates include Republican Michael Goscinski and William Flinter. Town Trustee candidates Glenn Goldsmith and Nick Krupski will also speak, along with Republican Tax Receiver candidate, incumbent Kelly Fogarty, who is running unopposed.
