Where In The World Is Welker?

The Importance of Community Engagement in Political Office

Running for political office is not just about making promises and offering policy solutions. It's about being intimately connected to the community that you will represent, understanding their needs, and actively participating in their daily lives.

Long Island's East End has vibrant wildlife, beautiful beaches, and of course concerns about traffic and pollution that intersect with various societal challenges. The importance of knowing what's happening in the community cannot be overstated.

Does Anyone Understand Ann Welker?

In any political race, it's essential to have a clear understanding of the candidates. My opponent, Ann Welker, does not offer policies, solutions and many just do not even know her. Her limited involvement in the community has left her relatively unknown. While her passion for the environment is admirable, it's imperative to recognize that it is not the sole concern for the east end.

Broadening the Scope of Issues

A candidate must be well-versed in various issues affecting local residents. Unfortunately, Ann Welker's ability to address issues such as crime, illegal and unvetted migrants, antisemitism, education, policy, and traffic solutions has been called into question. Her inability to provide comprehensive answers to these pressing concerns leaves voters wondering about her preparedness for the job.

Addressing Heinous Remarks

One particular instance during a debate highlighted a concerning comment made by Ann Welker regarding illicit drug use and sales. Her comment seemingly attributed the issue to one specific group, which is both inappropriate and divisive. In contrast, a responsible candidate understands that issues like drug use and crime affect people of all backgrounds, regardless of race, age, or gender.

A Vision for the Future

A successful candidate should have a clear vision for the future of their community. This vision should encompass a broad range of issues, including immigration policies that are well-thought-out and compassionate. It's essential to have plans, funding, and an environment that is welcoming but well-planned and benefits all members of our community.

Additionally, traffic congestion is a significant concern, especially during the summer months, when the East End experiences an influx of visitors. Addressing this issue requires practical solutions, which should be readily available. You can see my plans and policies on

Ann Welker has been silent on these issues.

East End Affordability

Affordable housing is a cornerstone of a thriving and inclusive community. It ensures that individuals and families of various backgrounds and income levels can access safe, stable, and reasonably priced homes. Affordable housing not only promotes economic diversity but also enhances the overall well-being of our community members. It allows them to invest in their futures, contribute to the local economy, and fosters a sense of belonging and stability that is essential for our vibrant east end! Ann Welker has been silenced on these issues.

Experience Counts

Experience is a valuable asset in any political race. I have a long history of community and public service which allows me to have a more comprehensive understanding of the challenges facing the east end. I am the candidate for District 2 needs because I am equipped to develop practical, effective solutions that benefit everyone in our community.

As the election approaches, it's crucial for voters to take a moment to review the policies and plans of each candidate. While focus on a particular issue is commendable, a well-rounded understanding of all the issues facing the community is essential.

Ann Welker doesn't have what it takes.

Experience counts, and on Election Day, Tuesday, November 7th, voters should consider the candidate who has shown a deep commitment to the community and a comprehensive approach to addressing its challenges. Vote Manny Vilar - Row B or C for a better future for Long Island's East End.
