Summer Showdown: Hamptons Voters to Decide 8 June Village Elections

Voters in eight villages across the Hamptons will hit the polls this month to determine who will lead their locality — and most of those elections feature challengers, although many incumbents are uncontested.

The biggest contest on the South Fork is a three-way race for mayor in the usually sleepy Village of West Hampton Dunes, where the only mayor the 31-year-old municipality has ever known is facing two challengers seeking to unseat the man considered the longest-serving mayor on Long Island. Of the eight village elections, there is only one other mayoral contest this cycle and four local mayors are running unopposed.
