Jerry, Perry, and Montauk Downs |East Hampton Star

The East Hampton Star featured a story on how former New York State Assemblyman Jerry Kremer saved the famous Montauk Downs golf course.

Montauk Downs State Park is one of the crown jewels in the state park system, said Jerry Kremer, a former state assemblyman and ex-chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, which controls the state’s funding.

Mr. Kremer played a huge part, with former Speaker of the House Perry Duryea, a Montauk resident (and “a tough guy”) in finding the money to save what he called one of the top 10 parks in the state.
