The political signs are popping up around West Islip, and so are candidates seeking local election to the Islip Town Board come November.
Most notably councilpersons Trish Bergin Weichbrodt and colleague Steve Flotteron are beginning to make the rounds by dropping in at nearby community group meetings as they gear up for meet the candidate night events in the next few weeks.
This week Bergin Weichbrodt and Flotteron unexpectedly dropped in at a nearby civic group and asked to address the audience. Bergin Weichbrodt talked about real estate consolidation moves she’s instigated to save town funds, and Flotteron displayed a rough draft of a map he is creating to promote town historical spots.
Just like the political signs that are appearing rapidly around the south shore, the impromptu appearances are clear signs that election season in Islip Town is getting into full swing.
Which brings us to the big question of whether Islip Town incumbents will succeed or if voters want change given the power tussles council members, especially Bergin Weichbrodt, have had this past year with Supervisor Tom Croci.
What do you think the election will bring? New faces or the same party in power?
Our new open blog, The Soapbox-Islip Government, hopes to be the place where locals can debate these kids of issues in town. Sharing is easy.
