No matter how many accidents slow traffic on Cty Rd 39 Supermarket-Anna is hell bent on greasing the way for her pals to plunk a superfluopus 40,000 sq. ft. mega King Kullen & shopping center at the intersection of 39 & Magee Street. Now, racing to get it done before this enabler goes, another developer is getting ready to build ANOTHER SHOPPING center across from Bridgehampton Commons because, of course, there is a "need". The "need" is to build now while this pliant Supervisor is still in office. Before this developer's doll gets off the public payroll she will have done irreparable damage to Southampton.
