LETTER TO THE EDITOR Bendel Caira Are Serving For The Right Reasons

first_imgDear Editor,As a Wilmington senior citizen who watches the Selectmen meetings weekly, I would like to offer my strong support and endorsement for Greg Bendel. He was elected to the Board of Selectmen three years ago and has shown by his action, knowledge, and deep concern for ALL of the residents of Wilmington.As an educator and coach, he is well aware of the needs of our children. Having served on the Wilmington Housing Authority, he is concerned and motivated to help our citizens. Raising a young family in Wilmington, he is aware of all the problems we share and all the great things Wilmington has to offer.Greg is available and makes it a priority to attend as many of the meetings and functions around town, knowing first hand of the wants and needs of the people. Along with Kevin Caira, who was elected to the Board three years ago and serves as Chairman this year, they have conducted the meetings in a very open, caring and transparent way.During public comments, Mr. Caira, in my opinion, is very generous, allowing everyone to speak and handles the sometimes unreasonable behavior with courtesy, civility, and patience. Mr. Caira has been involved in so many activities and volunteering in our town, including coaching Little League and Wilmington High School football and softball. And there are so many others.He was Vice Chairman of the Yentile Famr Recreational Development Committee, founding member and Vice President of the Wildcat Alumni and Friends Association member, and former Lodge President of the Wilmington Sons of Italy. (Also Past President and current National President of the Sons of Italy’s Committee for Social Justice.) And many more achievements for both Kevin and Greg to mention here.Both of these gentlemen are serving for the right reasons… and that is for you, for me, and for ALL of the townspeople of Wilmington.I would ask you to join me on April 27 and vote for Greg Bendel and Kevin Caira.Please know how very important your vote is.Thank you,Marilyn CoxLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

first_imgImage captured from the Harris County District Attorney’s Twitter feed / @ @HarrisCountyDAODistrict Attorney Kim Ogg is offering some residents of Harris County the opportunity of getting their outstanding warrants removed and their pending cases resolved for free and at no risk of being arrested during a one day event that will take place on Saturday, July 14.District Attorney Kim Ogg is offering some residents of Harris County the opportunity of getting their outstanding warrants removed and their pending cases resolved for free and at no risk of being arrested during a one day event that will take place this weekend.Ogg announced the initiative, which she calls the ‘Make It Right!’ program, during a press conference held on Friday. This weekend’s event will take place on Saturday, July 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at North Shore High School, which is located at 353 Castlegory Dr.The program will only apply in Harris County’s Precinct 3, which covers the east and northeast of the county.The offenses that can be removed are Class C warrants, which, for example, include theft (less than $100), public intoxication and disorderly conduct, and other pending charges.According to information published on the DA’s website, attorneys will be on-site to provide attendants with legal advice and counsel.Employers and volunteers from local, community-based organizations will also be present to provide information about jobs, job training, educational opportunities, as well as legal referral services.Ogg underscored at the press conference this initiative is not an “amnesty” and also touched on how time consuming and expensive serving Class C warrants can be. “It takes officers about four hours to arrest somebody, book them into jail, it takes prosecutors time in court to prosecute them, judges’ time, lawyers’ time, several thousand dollars are often expended just in the prosecution of even one minor offense.”Judge Joe Stephens, who is a Justice of the Peace for Precinct 3, was also at the press conference and noted: “I live in Precinct 3 and I know there’s a need and we are gonna do our best to fill that need.”The Harris County Public Defender’s Office, Workforce Solutions and Beacon Law are some of the agencies and organizations that are partnering with the DA’s Office in the ‘Make It Right!’ program.You can watch the press conference here:Make it Right! press conference https://t.co/KMPHOgsfao— Harris County DA (@HarrisCountyDAO) July 13, 2018 Sharelast_img read more
