Westhampton Trustee Sue Farrell Says She Won't Seek Reelection

Farell says she his considering moving to Florida.

After serving two years as a trustee on the Westhampton Beach Village board, Sue Farrell says she will not seek reelection this year.

"I am thinking of moving to Florida," said Farrell on Thursday afternoon.

Farrell, who says she hasn't made a final decision and still would need to sell her house, said she didn't think it would be fair to run and then half-way through her term, move.

"I get up every morning and look in the mirror at myself and say, 'I'm okay with this,'" she said.

Farrell said she is mostly okay with her decision because during her tenure, she accomplished what set out to when she first ran for village board.

"I wanted to take care of the police situation. It was far out of control and it has been resolved so I did here what I came here to do and then some," she said.

Farrell, who won her seat against two other challengers, says that over the past two years, she also worked to bring an to the village, on beach projects, including a deck expansion and kayak rack, as well as several beautification projects. She also is in the process of creating a plan to revamp Glover's Park to accommodate concerts, outdoor theater and movie nights.

Mayor Conrad Teller, whose seat is also up this year, said that he is "kinda sad" that Farrell is going to leave the area.

"She was a good trustee and it is nice having her.  She works hard, but she has to life to live," said Teller.

Teller says he will be seeking reelection for a fourth term in office as will Deputy Mayor Toni-Jo Birk.
