Rona Klopman is running for Trustee because of her life-long passion for maintaining the quality of our waters and access to our magnificent beaches. To attain that goal, she believes in 1)working for better cooperation and communication between the Trustees and the Town Board, 2) recognizing and working with government agencies such as the State Department of Environmental Conservation, 3) educating the public about the duties and responsibilities of the Trustees through TV coverage of their meetings, and 4) initiating legislation which will protect our natural resources and beaches so all residents are guided by the same rules and regulations.
