This "Meet & Treat" wouldn't have been possible without truck owner Shaker Matar, who is the town's locally permitted ice cream truck, Shaker Ice Cream Inc. He was very accommodating and even helped translate a few conversations with local Arabic families along the route.

As the Cayetano For Council campaign drove around Ward 3, they met some supporters, but many residents were unaware of the campaign and event. Cayetano said, "I was pleased to hear people say that they had to come out for the ice cream truck since the jingle could be heard from blocks away. We met so many new faces across the ward which were very welcoming and positive to the message and free treat." The event went even longer than expected and didn't wrap up until almost 8:00 p.m.
The campaign continues to build momentum ahead of the mail-in ballots and held its second "Coffee With Craig" on Sunday, October 4th, at the Hawthorne Diner. Cayetano is setting aside time on Sundays to address any questions residents have and to discuss what is on the minds of those in the ward. "I want the people of Hawthorne to know that their future councilman can be easily accessible and wants to hear what's on their minds, as well," said Cayetano.
The campaign is so pleased at the reception to these events and welcomes partnering with even more small businesses win or lose. "I'm committed to this town: our homeowners, renters and small businesses. Let's continue to shop, support, play and eat locally for them. Please consider voting Green row D or at least 6D for Craig in Ward 3 starting October 7th through mail-in ballot or in person, at the polls, with a provisional paper ballot on November 3rd.
