Lawn Signs

April 30th, 2019

Because many of you have asked us about lawn signs, we wanted to take a minute to explain how and why we decided to do things a little differently this year. For our last two elections, like most candidates, we used signs, flyers, and advertisements to try and spread our names and our message. As six-year incumbents, we realize that this year we are in a unique position to chart a new path. We decided we wanted to invest in something that will leave a lasting legacy and further strengthen the bonds of this community. For these reasons, we decided to forego the use of lawn signs and advertisements and instead make contributions to three Wantagh based organizations that are serving the children and families of this community: the Wantagh Foundation for Educational Excellence, the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, and the James Lodato Field of Dreams.

We wanted to explain our decision so that the absence of signs and advertisements isn’t mistaken for a lack of passion and commitment for the work we do, but rather a way to invest in the community we love.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to sharing our accomplishments and ideas with you and hope we can earn the opportunity to serve this community again.

- Kera & Peter
