PAC Forms to Support East Hampton High School Project

The "EHHC Renovate to Educate" political action committee will lobby to help pass a referendum for the project.

 

Two local residents have formed a political action committee to lobby on behalf of the proposed high school renovation project.

Thomas Cordeiro, a former member of the Town Council, and Joelyn Leon, who ran unsuccesfully for the Board of Education in 2011, formed the committee "EHHS Renovate to Educate," in January. They formally registered with the state's Election Enforcement Commission and filed their paperwork with the East Hampton Town Clerk's office on Jan. 17.

As a PAC, the group can undertake political lobbying in support of the project, something the school building committee, and the Board of Education, can not do.

At a recent meeting of the building committee some of its members, and members of the school board, discussed how such a PAC will be essential in getting the word out about the project.

The town appointed a high school building committee that is working on the  renovation proposal. The plan is estimated to cost between $37-$40 million and the committee hopes to hold a referendum on the spending proposal this spring.
