Thursday on Patch regarding the political ads posted in the high grass on the road.Democratic Town of North Hempstead supervisor candidate Judi Bosworth says she has taken down campaign signs on Port Washington Boulevard following a story
Last week, Patch questioned the use of numerous signs by candidates from both parties on the state road where knee-length grass in the median is in need of a mow.
Bosworth said she instructed her campaign staff and volunteers Thursday to be cognizant of all environmental issues concerning the location of her campaign signs with particular emphasis on not placing campaign signs in public areas where the grass clearly is in need of maintenance.
"I can confirm that all of our campaign signs have been removed from the median on Port Washington Blvd.," said Bosworth campaign manager Nick Guariglia to Patch on Friday. "However, our campaign noted earlier today that many Republicans' signs remain in those locations."
Councilwoman Dina DeGiorgio did not return a request for comment left with her office Friday by Patch.
Also on Friday, a representative from DeGiorgio's campaign responded to the video claiming Patch was biased in its coverage in favor of the Democrats.
Update Sept. 23 at 8:30 a.m.: After a quick check Sunday, it appears that all signs have been removed from the median of the road from Town of North Hempstead candidates Judi Bosworth, Wayne Wink and Dina DeGiorgio. Check back later Monday for more details.
