Councilman Weiner Launches War on Graffiti

CHARGE ! : County Councilman Robert Weiner has launched a 'War on Graffiti' in his western Brandywine Hundred district. In a series of emails, he has mustered some civic associations, the Brandywine School District, county police Explorer Scout troops and other groups to organize rapid-response 'citizen brigades'. The volunteer militia will stand ready to turn out as soon as unwanted decoration appears to at least paint over it, if not eventually to wipe it out. Green Acres Civic Association has already agreed to take on supports under the Interstate 95 and C.S.X. railroad bridges along Silverside Road.

"The successful lesson that New York City's anti-graffiti campaign taught us is the importance of immediate action ... in order to frustrate the graffiti vandals," Weiner said. As he sees it, each participating community will set up an organization under the leadership of a captain to whom residents will be urged to report any graffiti they spot. Delaware Department of Transportation has agreed to supply paint and safety equipment.  "This broad public-private partnership is essential if we hope to take back control of our communities from graffiti vandals and other criminal elements," Weiner said.

"Iíd like to express my appreciation to Councilman Bob Weiner who exhibits strength, determination and fortitude and is always on the side of the people. I followed Bobís actions when he was head of CCOBH's zoning committee and made strong efforts to try to stop the Brandywine Town Center construction. He has continued with energy and zeal in many pivotal positions in spite of enduring a lot of negative professional and personal attacks. I appreciate that he is never deterred."
