Primary Platform - Jobs, culture, arts and history! Motto - "Google Me!"

My primary goal as Mayor of Berwick will be to enrich the arts, save our historical sites and reduce crime by working on the root causes, including lack of employment opportunities and educational issues. As Mayor I would be the voice of the citizen, responding to current issues and acting to mitigate bad press and misunderstanding. I plan to have an open forum for discussion and respond to all questions presented. The next primary Mayoral election in the borough of Berwick, PA will be held May, 2017. Missed the 2013 opportunity, but did get 42 percent of the vote in the primary running against the most influential candidate in Berwick. All in all I did pretty well. I will be better prepared in 2017!

Google Me!

My motto says it all. The Internet archives all activities, good and bad. A leader should have many references of his deeds if searched based on personal postings, media postings and social network postings. Search for me, then search " Mayor Berwick PA" and "Mayor Bloomsburg PA" Then do the same for other local mayors. One's activities and accomplishments stand out, or not.

Berwick Theater PA

Save the Berwick Theater

You can help save the Berwick Theater by stopping by for a movie, be sure to enjoy their treats and leave a donation in the donation bucket as you go in to the theater.

You can also send a check payable to "DiAugustine" with the words "Berwick Theater Gift" on the memo line. Checks may be sent to the Berwick Theater, 108 East Front Street, Berwick PA 18603.

The Berwick Theater is in the borough of Berwick, Columbia County, PA, for those who are not of the area, and needs all of the movie projection equipment to be replaced by year end with the new digital technology equipment as movies will no longer be distributed on film.
