DEMOCRATIC

Van Scoyoc, 60, is seeking his second two-year term as supervisor after serving on the town board for six years. He is running on the Democratic and Working Families party lines.

ISSUES:

  • He cited water quality as a top concern noting efforts to improve the town’s nitrogen-reducing septic system rebate program and its proactive role in bringing public water to Wainscott after contamination was discovered in private wells.
  • During his tenure the town has pursued renewable energy sources, including bringing the first megawatt scale South Fork solar farm in Springs online and supporting offshore wind.
  • The town is pursuing affordable-housing opportunities with 50 units recently completed or under construction and is purchasing property in Wainscott for another development.
