Dombkowski Claims Victory in Bridgehampton Commish Race

In a 138-to-118 vote, appointed commissioner gets to keep his seat.

In a race separated by only 20 votes, Tom Dombkowski won a two-year seat on the Bridgehampton Fire District Board of Commissioners on Tuesday night. 

The vote was 138-to-118 in favor of Dombkwoski, a longtime Bridgehampton Fire Department firefighter, over his opponent Philip Cammann.

Dombkwoski was appointed to the board in September to fill a vacancy left by John Muse, who resigned. Muse had another two years before his term was up. 

Cammann, the department's only volunteer who is a paramedic, was making his second bid for the position. 

The race drew a total of 272 voters, according to Courtney Dombkwoski, Tom Dombkowski's daughter who stayed to hear the results that took over an hour to be counted.

Dean Foster was also elected on Tuesday night. Foster, who was appointed in September to fill a vacancy left by Jeff Loucheim, ran uncontested for a full five-year term on the board. He received 226 votes.
