The Southold Town Democratic Club will host a “Meet the Candidates” breakfast on Saturday, June 18, 2016, at CJ's American Grill, in the Mattituck Shopping Plaza, from 9 – 11 a.m. The breakfast will feature former Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst and attorney and former Suffolk County Planning Commission Chairman Dave Calone, both of whom are seeking the nomination to oppose Republican incumbent Lee Zeldin in the November general election.
“Dave and Anna are both well-qualified Democrats who can take back our congressional seat this November,” said Damon Rallis, co-president of the club. “This breakfast will be the final chance for many Democrats to get to know these great candidates ahead of the primary.”
Democrats will have the opportunity to vote on June 28, 2016.
The winner of the primary will go on to face incumbent Lee Zeldin in November.
Since the Southold Town Democratic Club re-formed earlier this year, with Rallis and his former running-mate Debbie O’Kane at the helm, the organization has been instrumental in getting the word out to local Democrats about the importance of taking back the First Congressional District seat from Lee Zeldin who ousted long-time Democratic Congressman Tim Bishop in 2014. So far, the club has hosted a number of events including a breakfast with Bishop as guest speaker and a successful debate between Throne-Holst and Calone in April.
The club is encouraging all Democrats to come down and get to know these great candidates before the upcoming primary.
The cost for the event is $20 and includes a full breakfast featuring assorted Goldberg bagels, scrambled eggs, French toast, home fires, sausage, bacon, assorted juices, and mimosas. Please RVSP as soon as possible as space will be limited.
