Turning the Page: Former East End Town Supervisors Reflect on Their Tenure

The rare and possibly unprecedented change of all five East End town supervisors in one election has given the former leaders a chance to focus on new pursuits after passing the reins.

Those who left office at the end of the 2023 were ex-East Hampton Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc, former Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman, retiring Riverhead Town Supervisor Yvette Aguiar, prior Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell and preceding Shelter Island Town Supervisor Gerry Siller — all of whom were replaced at the start of the new year.
