Not that anyone would know it from the amount of publicity its received, but the annual Westhampton Beach Fire District election is being held at the Sunset Avenue Firehouse this evening from 6:00-to-9:00 pm.
It's for the election of a Fire Commissioner, and while only current member Fred Overton is on the ballot, there are mutterings in those dark corners of the district where such things are usually muttered, that there is a stealth write-in campaign being mounted.
This is actually a much bigger deal than many might expect, considering the issue of a new $14.6 million firehouse is just over the horizon.
Right! Fred's getting up there, but he understands the needs of the Fire District, as opposed to the "wants" of the young'uns. Don't put another fox in the hen house!
