2019 Candidate for East Hampton Town Trustee
Mike Havens is a life long resident of East Hampton. As a Bayman, he is following in the footsteps of generations of his family. Mike has first hand knowledge of how important it is to ensure the harbors are properly dredged and maintained.He knows the local fish and shellfish stocks depend upon the water quality to thrive, which in turn benefits the economy and traditional character of East Hampton. Mike feels dredged material can be used to effectively replenish eroded shorelines. He has taken the initiative to become familiar with staff members of other agencies who have input into dredge projects. He believes an understanding of the unique capabilities of the Trustees is possible without sacrificing the public’s patented lands and waters. Mike will appreciate the support of the community to serve as an East Hampton Town Trustee.
