Update: Thanks to contributions made by checks by more than 30 contributers received through 10/18, I can lower my fundraising goal to $5,625 from $8,000. Thank you!!!!

I am running for Southold Town Trustee, because as Trustee I can help protect and restore the Peconic estuary and Long Island Sound, as well as preserve the rural, (virtually) unblemished nature of our many miles of coastline and related wetlands.

To win, I need to raise about $8,000. I hope you can help. By investing in me for this election, you can help Southold Town, The Peconic estuary, and Long Island Sound. You also help me build a career of direct public service, which may one day include a jurisdiction that affects you directly.

As a thank you to anyone who contributes any amount, I will send an autographed copy of my 'rookie card'. If nothing else, it should be a fun souvenir.

The position of Trustee is quite old; it predates the American Revolution. Trustees continue to give Southolders direct democratic control over shoreline development and shoreline hardening. Both issues are extremely important given the ever increasing local development pressures and climate change.

Trustees' jurisdiction extends to our 'common lands', that area landward 100' from the water or wetlands. Through our enforcement of the wetland and related codes, we have power to make a real difference.

Our current Trustees are not awful; they do a reasonably good job. But they could be more proactive, more science-based, more transparent, and ultimately, more effective. I can help in each of those areas.

I have a real shot at winning, but my election is by no means guaranteed. Running this campaign effectively, start to finish, will cost about $8,000. I hope you will contribute what you can.

Again, as a thank you to anyone who contributes any amount, I will send an autographed copy of my 'rookie card'. If nothing else, it should be a fun souvenir.

Thanks again for your consideration.

Abigail
