Eugene C. DePasquale III is running for East Hampton town assessor

Eugene C. DePasquale III

DePasquale said he would support a townwide reassessment, if the town board were to pass legislation ordering one, to make sure “the fair share of the property tax burden is redistributed.” He touted his experience “defending the town’s tax base” by going to court for “thousands” of small claims assessment reviews and helping residents file claims. He also cited his on-the-job training and knowledge, and noted the assessors have produced balanced assessment rolls every year.

DePasquale, 59, is running on the Democratic, Independence and Working Families party lines. The Montauk resident has a bachelor’s degree in English from Columbia University and two continuing education diplomas from New York University’s real estate school. Before being elected as an assessor 16 years ago, DePasquale worked as a carpenter, a contracting company supervisor and a film shoot grip. He is a member of the East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue, a YMCA lifeguard, a CPR instructor and a former Montauk Fire Department EMT. He has two children.
