Letica Enters Asharoken Mayoral Race

Dr. Greg Letica running on a platform of experience and reform.

The first candidate has officially thrown his hat into the ring for Mayor of Asharoken in the upcoming June 19 election.

Dr. Greg Letica, 55, a dentist, businessman, and lifetime Asharoken resident, announced his candidacy earlier this week and is running on a reform platform. Among his goals are a more open and transparent village government, the creation of an official Asharoken web site where residents can access important village documents, and a reduction in the scope and salary of the village attorney position, as detailed on his official campaign page, www.leticaformayor.com.

"It is time for a change in leadership in the village and a time to return our government to the residents of the village,” he said in a statement.

Letica has served as Village treasurer, trustee, deputy harbor master, police contract negotiator and as a member of multiple budget committees. He also began the Village recycling program and worked to restore sand to eroded beaches.

In his spare time, Letica enjoys boating, gardening, travel and birding, and has served as Commodore of the Lloyd Harbor Yacht Club for two years. He also  belongs to the Nature Conservancy, the National Audubon Society, Save the Sound, and is a weekly contributor to the Ecumenical Lay Council’s food pantry.

The Mayor and two trustee positions are up for grabs, each for two year terms. Current Mayor Patricia Irving is serving her second term in office and was first elected in 2008.
