Following a successful Hawthorne Day where they distributed campaign literature and signed up new voters, this year’s Hawthorne Republican council candidates – JoAnn Fitzsimmons, Rayna Laiosa, Garry Sinning and Frank Matthews – shifted their 2019 campaign into high gear with a gala cocktail reception for about 75 supporters at Macaluso’s on Thursday, September 26. Attendees feasted on Macaluso’s famous buffet with open bar while enjoying music provided by the Bill Moraites Trio.

According to party leader, Mayor Richard Goldberg, “It was a great night to meet and greet our new and incumbent candidates. The enthusiasm they experienced will create the momentum it takes for a successful outcome in November.”

Two days later, on Saturday, September 28, Team Goldberg held the official grand opening celebration for its new campaign headquarters at 300 Lincoln Avenue. The former site of the old Decker Dodge auto dealership now features a brand new retail complex and Team Goldberg is proud to be its first official tenant.
