Southold Town Supervisor

Democratic, Libertarian

Gregory P. Doroski

Background:

DEMOCRATIC

Doroski, 39, of Mattituck, is running on the Democratic and Libertarian lines. He is making his first run for office. He previously was a managing partner at Threes Brewing in Brooklyn.

Policies:
  • The town needs to do more to protect water quality in the Sound, he said, by promoting on-site wastewater treatment systems and controlling storm water runoff.
  • Doroski said the town needs to do more to promote small businesses and support “intelligent” growth. It’s difficult to start a small business because of the bureaucratic hoops, he said, so the town needs to streamline the process.
  • The lengthy delays in adopting a town master plan have resulted in a lack of a comprehensive plan, he said. The town needs a plan in place to make forward-looking decisions with policy and codes to support them.
