Carla Simpson

My name is Carla Simpson. I am a PTA mom, community leader and a longtime resident of Suffolk’s 10th Legislative District. Over 30 years ago, my family left Brooklyn to raise me and my three siblings in Hauppauge, given their value of the suburban environment. My parents and grandmother encouraged me to work hard in school. Thanks to their help and my determination, I was able to graduate from Hauppauge High School at the top of my class and attend Dartmouth College, the first in my family to pursue a college education. I then went on to successfully complete the MBA program at Columbia University, an endeavor I undertook all while pregnant with my daughter, Ava. Even while sitting in the lecture halls of some of our country’s most prestigious universities, I never doubted I’d return home to raise my family in this district. Dense urban areas can be fun places to work, play, and, for some, live, but I’ve always valued our suburban way of life and knew it was the best place for my family. In running for Suffolk County Legislature, one of my core priorities will be to make sure that our suburban lifestyle is preserved and that our landscapes will not be destroyed by overdevelopment. read more »

Southold Town Trustee

Eric Sepenoski

A few months ago I took my five-year-old son, Henry, clamming in Hallocks Bay for the first time. The water ran clear and cool in the shallows as we waded out beyond the prickly cordgrass and the mussels that hold the bank. I lowered the scratch rake to the bottom and began digging, listening for the clunk a clam makes amidst the rattle of stones. Minutes later we had a chowder. Henry reached in past the rake’s teeth and grabbed it. “We’re going to eat this one, Dad,” he told me excitedly as he wiped mud from its shell. Under a bright June sun, my eyes refocused and I caught sight of our reflections rippling below—silhouettes on the surface of the bay.  read more »
