Town supervisor races have been set in Brookhaven, North Hempstead, Southampton and East Hampton as party leaders named candidates for November elections.

Several longtime town leaders will not be on the ballot, including Yvette Aguiar of Riverhead, Jay Schneiderman of Southampton, Scott Russell of Southold and Peter Van Scoyoc of East Hampton, all of whom are retiring or term-limited. Republican Brookhaven Supervisor Edward P. Romaine is running for Suffolk County executive.

Some familiar faces are seeking new — or old — positions, including Suffolk County Legis. Al Krupski (D-Cutchogue), running for Southold supervisor, and former North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman, a Democrat seeking to reclaim his former post and unseat incumbent Jennifer DeSena, a registered Democrat running with Republican endorsement.

Republican supervisors Angie M. Carpenter of Islip, Donald X. Clavin Jr. of Hempstead and Joseph Saladino of Oyster Bay are running for reelection, party officials said.

In other supervisor races:

  • Brookhaven: Democratic Port Jefferson Mayor Margot J. Garant faces Republican Town Councilman Dan Panico. 
  • East Hampton: Republican political newcomer Gretta Leon faces Democratic Councilwoman Kathee Burke-Gonzalez.
  • Southampton: Republican Councilwoman Cyndi McNamara opposes Democratic Westhampton Beach Mayor Maria Moore.
  • Shelter Island: Supervisor Gerard F. Siller faces a challenge from Arnott G. Gooding in a June 27 Democratic primary. Republican Councilwoman Amber Brach-Williams will challenge the Democratic nominee. 
  • Riverhead: Democrats named Angela DeVito, who ran an unsuccessful 2013 campaign to unseat then-Supervisor Sean Walter, to run again for the post. Republicans named Councilman Tim Hubbard to run for the post. He was also deputy supervisor from 2018 to 2019.
