PATERSON, NJ - Councilman Luis Velez has a message for the graffiti ‘artist’ who left his mark on a building near Carroll Street and Park Avenue sometime Saturday night: Your work is not welcome here.

Velez told TAPinto Paterson that he had just taken the time by himself and one volunteer, to paint over graffiti at this location and nine others on Friday. This site was tagged again a little bit more than 24 hours later. 

Saying that he has brought the matter to the attention of the Paterson Police Department, Velez added that whoever is responsible “will not stop the progress we are making in the 5th Ward.”
