Support local.

That’s the message behind Port Jefferson Mayor Margot Garant’s new web series called “Zooming with the Mayor.”

Since launching this initiative in April, the mayor has highlighted a total of 27 local businesses (and counting) — from merchants to restaurants.

The easy-going interviews range between four to seven minutes long, and showcase Port Jefferson purveyors’ services during the pandemic.

One of the latest interviews is with the director of theLong Island Explorium, Angeline Judex, who discusses the technology her nonprofit is using to keep children engaged during the quarantine.

Watch it below.

All of the web series videos live on portjeff.com/opentoday, a site sponsored by the Village of Port Jefferson and the Port Jeff Business Improvement District. Visit that link to watch more interviews from your favorite places in town.
