All of the major newspapers serving the East End have written their endorsements for the 2nd Legislative District for Suffolk County Legislature. And they all endorse Fleming!
“Fleming's calm demeanor reflects her willingness to work with others. She understands the unique requirements of her East End district, while also recognizing the need to innovate and encourage development where it makes sense. Her interest in environmental issues is welcome and can aid not just her district, but the county as a whole.”
Sag Harbor Express:
“Southampton Town Councilwoman Bridget Fleming gets our nod to replace Jay Schneiderman as Suffolk County legislator. At the town level, Ms. Fleming has been willing to roll up her sleeves and work in a bipartisan fashion on a number of issues facing the town, and there is no reason to think she will not continue that effort at the county level.”
“We’ve always liked Fleming and always endorsed her. She works quietly but effectively behind the scenes, especially in Flanders with YouthBuild and the youth-run Farmer’s market. We were impressed that she did not seek out publicity for her work – we can’t think of many politicians who eschew the limelight!
“She has been an integral part of the reshaping of the town’s finances to the point that Southampton may be the most efficiently run township on Long Island. She has the proven capability of working across party lines effectively.”
“The Independent Endorses Bridget Fleming.”
The Southampton and East Hampton Press:
“She has clearly earned the right to represent East Hampton and Southampton towns in Hauppauge.”
The Shelter Island Reporter:
“Ms. Fleming…has legislative experience as a Southampton Town councilwoman and has demonstrated an understanding of compromise to achieve her goals. She will be a worthy successor to Jay Schneiderman.”
