Elected Officials Will Discuss the Latest Issues Affecting Their Towns
LIMBA (Long Island Metro Business Action) has announced that it will present an East End Supervisors’ Roundtable on Thursday, October 6 at the Southampton Inn, located at 91 Hill Street in Southampton. Featured speakers will include Riverhead Town Supervisor Yvette Aguiar, Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell, Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman and Shelter Island Town Supervisor Gerry Siller. The roundtable event is sponsored by Gershow Recycling.
The elected officials will discuss the latest developments in their respective towns, as well as trends affecting the east end of Long Island, such as affordable housing, tourism, the environment, water quality and economic development.
Ms. Aguiar, a former sergeant detective with the NYPD Counterterrorism Division, is the first Latina to be elected Riverhead Town Supervisor. Mr. Schneiderman was first elected Southampton Town Supervisor in 2015 and again in 2019, and previously served as Suffolk County Legislator. Mr. Russell spent 15 years as Town Assessor before being first elected as Southold Town Supervisor in 2005. Mr. Siller first served as Supervisor from 1998 to 2001 and was re-elected in 2019 and again in 2021.
“This will be a very informative session for all those who attend,” said Ernie Fazio, Chairman, LIMBA. “Our guests will address the issues that affect not only their constituents, but Long Island at large, considering the East End’s importance as an economic engine to the region’s environment and sustainability. We will also open the floor to our attendees, who may have questions of their own about what is going on in the East End.”
Lunch starts at noon, followed by the panel discussion at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 for LIMBA members, $65 for non-members. Tickets are available at the door for $75 each, and tickets for tables of eight can be purchased for $440.
