Acting as a new political party, the East Hampton Reform Democrats hosted their first Fair and Festival at Ashawagh Hall in Springs on Thursday, August 23. Although many Democratic leaders were present at the fair, the festival was billed as a bi-partisan event. Among the Democratic leaders in attendance was David Gruber, who stressed the importance of giving back to the community and taking care of our local environment.
