Bill Scaglione is running for Port Washington Garbage District Commissioner, which is a good thing for residents who are concerned about the community. Mr. Scaglione is a 27 year-long resident of Port Washington and a familiar figure on Main Street. For an equal amount of time he has owned and operated Bill's Automotive Repair aptly located at One Main Street.
Mr. Scaglione mans his perch at One Main Street like Captain Ahab. He greets customers by name. He knows the name of your wife, your children and your dog. He shares thoughts about what works in the community and what is in need of amendment. He reminds you that he's here for the long run, so if you can't pay your bill now - later will be fine.
His green billboard posted at One Main Street tells residents that he is invested in the community. The white lettering also tells residents to vote on Dec. 14 at the Polish Hall. If the sign had offered a personal platitude, that would have sufficed. Instead - thinking of the community - he tells us to vote on Dec. 14 at the Polish American Hall.
That's what sets Mr. Scaglione apart from others. He thinks first about Port Washington.
