West Hampton Dunes Village Mayoral Challenger Emerges

A West Hampton Dunes village trustee has announced his campaign to unseat the municipality’s mayor, who, with more than 30 years in the post, is considered the current longest-serving village leader on Long Island.

Gary Trimarchi said in his April 3 campaign announcement that it is time for a change in leadership from West Hampton Dunes Village Mayor Gary Vegliant, who has led the locality since 1994, shortly after it was founded to help it rebuild in the wake of a nor’easter that devastated the barrier island community.
