The same questions were asked of all candidates running for the Town of Oyster Bay Board, which is a four-year term. In the event a council member leaves office prior to completion of a full term, the town board appoints a replacement. That person serves until the next regularly scheduled election, at which time the voters elect an individual to serve the remainder of the term. There is no limit to the number of terms council members may serve.
Incumbent Republican councilmembers Chris J. Coschignano, Elizabeth A. Faughnan and Joseph G. Pinto are being challenged by Democrats Matt Meng, Erin Reilley and Doug Watson. Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 3. Their stories appear below in alphabetical order.
This month will see more action on the Kerouac front as Jack’s Last Call: Say Goodbye to Kerouac, the original play about Jack Kerouac’s last night on Long Island, will be performed at Gunther’s Tap Room in Northport.

In fact, the play itself is set in Gunther’s, a place where Kerouac once drank and played pool during his time on Long Island in the early 1960s. It will be staged on Saturday, Oct. 24, almost 40 years to the date of Kerouac’s death, which took place on Oct. 21, 1969.
