Incumbent Democrat Nick Krupski will be on the ballot once again running for Southold Town Trustee. Nick was born and raised on his family farm in Cutchogue where he still practices as a 5th generation farmer. He has a Bachelor’s degree in geology and environmental science and a Masters degree in biology and education from CW Post. His previous work experience includes habitat restoration (both coastal and underwater) as well as species rehabilitation (the peconic bay scallop) with Cornell Marine Program, sampling and treating subsurface waters county-wide with the Suffolk County Water Authority, and working as a dive consultant with Coastal Monitoring Associates studying contaminant influx at superfund and other highly polluted locations. He is completing his first term as a Southold Town Trustee, and recently welcomed his first child, Victoria in early February.
“As a trustee the past 3 and half years I am proud to say I have successfully pursued the goals I set for this position 4 years ago: from working to maintain public access of our shoreline by limiting private docks to acceptable locations, to educating local students on the crucial environmental needs of our community, to working on restoration projects to revive Southold’s wetland habitats and critical existing natural shorelines. I look forward to continuing this important work as your Trustee for 4 more years in Southold Town.”
