Slate Includes Nine Candidates for Seats on Town Council,
Board of Education, Board of Finance and Zoning Board of Appeals
East Hampton, CT, August 27, 2015– The Chatham Party is back to challenge the status quo in East Hampton. With a slate of nine candidates, the party hopes to win seats on four elected boards in the November election.
Chatham Party candidates for Town Council are Kyle Dostaler, Bill Marshall, Tania Sones and Sue Weintraub. Dostaler and Weintraub have both previously served on Town Council while Marshall and Sones are former and current members of the Board of Education.
The Chatham Party endorsed one candidate for the Board of Education, Scott Minnick. An incumbent and former two-term member of Town Council, Minnick was elected to the Board of Education in 2011.
Three candidates have been endorsed for the Board of Finance. Joining incumbent Mary Ann Dostaler on the slate are Scott Sanicki and Paul Hoffman, both of whom are former members of the Planning & Zoning Commission.
Rounding out the Chatham Party slate is Cynthia Abraham. A current member of the High School Building Committee, Abraham is running for a five year term on the Zoning Board of Appeals.
Kyle Dostaler, Chatham Party chairman, said, “There are many important and long-standing issues facing our community that have not moved forward because people can’t agree. Chatham Party candidates are committed to providing the leadership to find solutions, build consensus and engage voters.”
The Chatham slate reflects the Party’s independent diversity and includes Independent, Democrat and Republican candidates. Unlike the major parties, the Chatham Party is open and welcomes members from all political affiliations.
The Chatham Party, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, was established in 2005 and has run candidates in six campaigns, twice winning majority seats on Town Council. More information about the candidates and the platform will be available on the Chatham Party web site at www.chathamparty.org.
