“Main Street Matters”: Cast Your Vote For Red Hook

Would you like to help Red Hook get some much needed help after all the problems the neighborhood faced after Hurricane Sandy?  It only takes a minute and a few clicks on your computer.
Matthew of Mazzone Hardware has made us aware of a new program by Benjamin Moore entitled "Neighborhood Matters" that allows you to choose a main street to revitalize.
He has provided the information below:
Benjamin Moore Paints has just announced the launching of “Main Street Matters”, an all-expense-paid program provided FREE to spruce up rows of properties located in twenty communities throughout North America. 
When Benjamin Moore announced this program, the Mazzone family - serving the hardware and paint needs of Carroll Gardens and the surrounding communities since 1950 - immediately launched its own campaign to include Red Hood on the list of selected communities being considered for this great opportunity. 
What’s needed now is for people to go online and vote for Red Hook. The twenty communities that will be chosen as the most in need of revitalization will be based solely on the amount of votes received. 
Considering what the Red Hook community has suffered in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, this could be one more way we can all come to the aid of our neighbors in need. Just look at what Benjamin Moore is willing to do. 
Benjamin Moore will not only provide the paint and supplies needed for facades, railings, and other exterior building trims, but will also provide color experts to consult on the best choices to enhance the architectural style, regional influences and historic references in each community. And in addition, this program will put local professional painters to work – again, all paid for by Benjamin Moore. 
Please, click on this link and vote. Thank you.
The map of North America immediately comes up.Locate and click on NY, next click on Red Hook, and finally click on Vote Now. ALL DONE! 
Voting ends at midnight June 30th.You can cast a vote once every 24 hours(You can only vote once every 24 hours when usingthe same email address and/or same computer.)
You can find all the pertinent information here.

Let's make this happen for Red Hook, friends.  Don't forget to spread the news and encourage others to vote as well.
