Assemblyman-Elect Michael Reilly (R – South Shore) announced today that he would be partnering with local not-for-profit Where To Turn to offer service credit to school students who collect and return campaign signs over the coming weeks.
Also participating in the collection is Assemblyman Ron Castorina, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, State Senator Andrew Lanza, and Congressman Dan Donovan.
“Often these signs are left up for weeks after Election Day, sometimes long into the new year, and become a nuisance to the community,” said Assemblyman-Election Michael Reilly. “I am pleased to be working with Where To Turn and several of my colleagues in this coordinated effort to collect our signs now that the election is over.”
“Continuing in our efforts to improve the quality of life on Staten Island, Where To Turn will be working with Assemblyman-Elect Reilly to coordinate the collection of campaign signs that are left up after Election Day,” said Dennis McKeon, Executive Director of Where To Turn. “Students who collect signs will be awarded community service credit through Where To Turn.”
Collected signs can be turned into Where To Turn by contacting Dennis McKeon at 718.619.2371.
