Alexandra R started this petition to Residents of Setauket and

The town of Setauket and the neighboring Three Village area is rooted in deep history around the founding of our country. Local residents are proud to maintain our connection to our communities important role in the development of our nation through community organizations, events and landmarks. Setauket and the Three Villages is an area rich in diverse  history and community members.  

The Setauket Patriots is a group that has developed as a right wing organization which aligns itself with views that are rooted in extremism. This group openly encourages and displays voter intimidation, misuse and abuse of power & have been involved in a number of public/viral incidents in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election.

This organization, like any other, has a right to gather & connect behind their beliefs. However, they have chosen to identify themselves with the name of a Long Island town, a town within which many residents do not support or want to be associated with these extreme ideals and views. Because the organization has incorporated the name of this town, those who aren’t familiar with our deep history and strong sense of community are seeing our town and area as being directly related to extreme right-wing views.

The local residents of Setauket, the Three Villages and beyond, respectfully ask that The Setauket Patriots rename their organization. We are neighbors and community members, we have a responsibility to hold our local community to a standard, and that standard is not reflected in the views and actions shared by this organization.
