2021 Elections

Suffolk County

Suffolk Legislature (1st LD)

Al Krupski

In addition to serving the residents of Suffolk County in the Legislature since he was first elected in 2013, Al and his wife Mary run Krupski’s Pumpkin Farm, welcoming the sixth generation of family farmers with the birth of three grandchildren over the last few years. Prior to his tenure with the county, Al served on Southold Town Trustees and the Southold Town Board. In his 36 years of public service, Al has established a strong record of environmental protection, and he continues to work across party lines to preserve the East End for future generations. Born and raised on the North Fork, Al received a BS in Plant Science from the University of Delaware, and after graduation, came home and worked on the family farm, eventually, taking it over. Al has a long history of public service, first being elected to the Southold Town Board of Trustees in 1985. He served for 20 years, the last 14 of which as Trustee President. During his tenure as president, he saw that the overdevelopment of Southold’s shoreline had adverse effects on the environment and quality of life, so he successfully spearheaded the effort to rewrite the town’s 30-year-old Wetlands Code, affording the Town better environmental and legal protection. read more »

She worked to create and enhance economic opportunities throughout the town, promoting youth training in sustainable building trades and fresh produce retailing. She was a champion for landmark legislation to protect working farms, and real action on much-needed affordable housing development.

Suffolk Executive Branch

Suffolk County Sheriff

Sheriff Errol Toulon

With 30 years of law enforcement experience, I’ve learned that succeeding as Sheriff requires putting politics aside and getting the job done—that’s why I’ve earned the endorsement of the Suffolk County Law Enforcement Coalition. Those 30 years of experience mean I’ve served long enough to see what works and what doesn’t. I spent 25 years working on Rikers Island in roles ranging from correction officer to deputy commissioner. I specialized in training thousands of officers in the latest gang prevention techniques. As your Sheriff, I have, and will continue to, crack down on violent gangs, like MS-13, to keep gang members behind bars and off our streets. read more »

Southold Highway Superintendent

Daniel Goodwin

My name is Dan Goodwiin and I’m running for Southold Town Highway Superintendent. Being ready for a storm is who I am at my core. A mechanical engineer and emergency response professional, I’ve trained to prepare in advance, vet out solutions for the unknown, and adapt to change. Our community’s recent brush with Hurricane Henri proved a lesson in our need for a future Highway Superintendent ready to be proactive rather than reactive. Like you, I watched the forecast change from a slight chance of rain to a direct hit—a rare Category 1 storm riding the jet stream North, fueled by warmer waters and a rising tide reminiscent of Sandy. As Henri set its sights on us, my family’s properties secured and ready, I set my sights on drafting a plan to prepare and protect the people of Southold for the long term and stepped into action to do the job of Superintendent of Highways. read more »

Southold Town Trustee

My name is Elizabeth Peeples and I am running for Southold Town Trustee. From the farm and the seaside to “Farming the Seaside,” my life story has swept me up the East Coast. My mom grew up on a farm in rural South Carolina with the rolling Smoky Mountains in the distance. Two hundred miles East, my dad grew up on the tidal waters and marshes of the Lowcountry in Charleston. Growing up visiting family in these diverse and immersive environments was integral in my upbringing. Fast forward to my adulthood, after years of the fast-paced city life and with plans to start a family of my own, the need for centering led me in search of something familiar. Similar to an oyster, the clean, crisp, brininess beckoned to me from the East End. To trade my city garb and tall buildings for Grundens and a 10-acre oyster farm in Gardiners Bay was a once in a lifetime opportunity - and I jumped in feet first!  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 »

Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. is born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the son of Catherine Eugenia Finnegan Biden and Joseph Robinette Biden, Sr., and the first of four children.
