East Hampton Group for Good Government  

GGG's Solutions



How the East Hampton Group for Good Government can help correct the situation:


WE FORMED GGG AS A NON-PARTISAN COMMUNITY GROUP. WE PROMOTE AND SUPPORT TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY BY ALL GOVERNMENTAL BODIES IN THE TOWN OF EAST HAMPTON.
 

GGG's Solutions:



1. Promote awareness of problems by keeping up with local issues and disseminating information to the public. Many second home owners, in particular, are not well informed.

2. Promote public awareness of the views, experience and qualifications of candidates for public office, whether the Town Board, Villages Board, Town Trustees, School Boards, or appointed boards, meet high standards of competency and experience.

3. Identify the best practices for governance in East Hampton political subdivisions, schools and appointed boards and educate the public about these practices.

4. Foster transparent governance and civil discourse.

5. Educate the public on different forms of local governance, including the Town Manager model.

6. Encourage both full-time and second home owners to vote in East Hampton. A recent N.Y. State court decision now permits residents to vote where they have a second home without affecting their primary residence.

7. Encourage all Town and school boards to hold meetings at convenient times so that working full-time residents and second home owners can attend.

8. Encourage respect for the opinions of others and acceptance of a wide divergence of views.
