Help Us Make Local Government Work For You

August 2020

Dear Southampton Town Democratic Party Supporter,

Now that the Democratic Primary Elections are over and Nancy Goroff is our candidate for Congress in NY1, it is time to get ready for the General Election on November 3rd. From climate change and health care, to fair-paying jobs, education, and immigration, this is unquestionably the most important political contest in our lifetime. It is paramount and urgent to ensure that Joe Biden becomes our next President and that Democrats retain control of Congress and take back the Senate – Trump is a clear and present danger to the Constitution and our Democracy and must be decisively defeated.

Our work begins now

Help support Nancy for US Congress and defeat Trump-fanatic Lee Zeldin and his failed policies. Nancy will affect positive change and ensure the quality of life for all the residents in Southampton Town and Congressional District 1.

Help us fund our Southampton Citizen Engagement and Voter Registration Campaign

Your local Democrats are the first responders to the crisis of the Trump administration and his biggest supporter, Lee Zeldin, and we must continue to grow the Democratic Party in Southampton.  In 2017, for the first time ever, we surpassed the Republicans in registered voters, a great triumph, and now there are over 2,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans and growing every month. In fact, we are now the major party in the Town, we have a super-majority on the Town Board and we are one of the strongest and most successful Democratic Committees in Suffolk County.

However, in order to hold onto Congress, take back the Senate and elect Joe Biden as President, we have to continue to grow the Party, enroll more Democrats, recruit volunteers and GET-OUT-THE-VOTE! We’ll do it as we always have, by appealing to the best in people.  We also need to create interactive, digital pathways to communicate with younger voters who have registered as Democrats but might not yet feel a strong affiliation with the Party.  And – we have an opportunity we have never had before to persuade moderate Republican voters in our district to join our cause as they inevitably begin to feel disillusioned with the chaos and lies of Trump and his administration, as well as the totally ineffective and lying Zeldin, who supports Trump at the expense of the Congressional District.

However, this will take a lot of work and a lot of money. We have to work even harder and we ask you for even more support. I am personally appealing to you and urge you to continue being one of our most generous and valued donors. Please help the Democratic Party, your first responder, in these dangerous times.
