Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley spoke with New York City radio station WBAI's Long Island reporter, Dr. Jim Krivo on Wednesday morning about the day laborer problem and the mayor's efforts to help establish a hiring facility at Aldrich Lane. The mayor asked listeners to phone him at Village Hall to voice support for his efforts to solve the problem which will not use any public funds.
The mayor was interviewed on the program "Wake Up Call" at about 6:45 am. The program can be downloaded at this link. (click on the third entry for the 6-7am portion.)
The organization "Coalition for a Work Link Center" has been encouraging those who support the center to contact both Town and Village officials and tell them you support Mayor Epley regarding establishment of the Worklink Center.
