Going green


As a member of GAIN (Green And Involved Now) and a resident of the Town of Southampton, I want to thank our elected officials for their time and interest in the Greening of the South Fork held at the Rogers Memorial Library recently. The panel members included Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley, Sag Harbor Village Mayor Gregory N. Ferraris, Southampton Town Supervisor Linda Kabot, East Hampton Town Supervisor William McGintee, East Hampton Village Mayor Paul F. Rickenbach, Jr., and Suffolk County Legislator Jay H. Schneiderman. Almost 150 residents of the South Fork attended this discussion sponsored by GAIN, the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons, Rogers Memorial Library, Renewable Energy Long Island and Oxfam.

I was very excited to hear of all of the efforts by the county, towns and villages to make the South Fork more sustainable. As a resident of the Town of Southampton, I was especially excited to learn of the creation of a Green Citizens Action Committee and Green Town Coordinator within the town. As a member of GAIN, I will continue to support these efforts and will look forward to hearing about successes within the town.

Thank you, elected officials, for your continued support of efforts to make the South Fork more sustainable.
