Southampton, North Sea Fire District Elections Uncontested

Brian Cooke and John Washabaugh unopposed.

Incumbent candidates for seats on boards of fire commissioners in the Southampton and North Sea fire districts are going unchallenged in the Dec. 11 elections.

In North Sea, John Washabaugh, a former chief of the North Sea Fire Department, is running for his second five-year term as a fire commissioner.

North Sea Fire District residents may vote between 6 and 9 p.m. at the North Sea main firehouse at 149 Noyac Road.

In the Southampton Fire District, former Southampton Fire Department Chief Brian Cooke is running unopposed for his first full term. He was elected in 2010 to complete the unexpired term of former Commissioner Fred Andrews who moved out of the district.

Cooke is the vice president of operations for Hampton Jitney.

Voters in the Southampton Fire District, which roughly consists of the Shinnecock Indian Reservation, Tuckahoe, Shinnecock Hills and parts of Water Mill may cast their ballots between 5 and 9 p.m. on Dec. 11 at the Tuckahoe School library.

Meanwhile, the Bridgehampton Fire District, which covers Bridgehampton, Sagaponack and areas of Water Mill, has a race Dec. 11 between two longtime volunteers, Tom Dombkowski, a Bridgehampton Fire Department firefighter who was appointed as a commissioner in September, and Philip Cammann, the sole paramedic with the department's ambulance company.
