Nick Deegan, who lost his bid for a seat in the New York State Assembly to Dan Losquadro earlier this month, is running for a one-year term as Mattituck Park District Commissioner. Voting happens Tuesday from 4 to 8 p.m. at Veterans Beach Park.
Deegan said that he had been removed from the board when he failed to take the oath of office in time when he decided to run for the assembly in early September and is running to get his seat back. Mattituck resident Mike Ryan, who is running as a write-in candidate, is running against Deegan, who has been a park district commissioner since 2007.
Mattituck residents George Lomaga, a college professor and former school board member, and Russ Williamson are also running for a seat to be left vacant by Charles Zaloom, who is not running again for park district commissioner for a three-year term.
Incumbant treasurer Shelley Maddaloni is running unopposed for a two-year term. Incumbent Jerry Goehringer has two years left to serve of his term after his re-election last year.
Since 1941, the Mattituck Park District has maintained and enhanced nine properties in Mattituck — beaches, athletic fields, a boat ramp and nature preserves — a total of 73 acres. The properties are private to residents of the park district, which includes parts of Laurel.
The office is located at Veterans Beach Memorial Park, 11280 Peconic Bay Boulevard, Mattituck. Call 631-298-9103 or go to www. mattituckparkdistrict.com
