Issues:

  • Schneiderman, who is running unopposed, touted his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • He says improving water quality in the town is top priority.
  • Holding the line on taxes is important for Schneiderman, who has before said he had never presented a budget with a tax rate increase until the 2021 Southampton Town budget. The town raised the tax rate by just under 2.5% that year after its population swelled and the need for town sets grew during the pandemic.
