The Real Deal

Gina Arresta is the real deal. What you see is what you get. She does not have any personal agendas or ulterior motives.

The minute you meet her, you can’t help but smile, because her positive energy is contagious. In every area of Gina’s life, whether personal, as a daughter, wife, mother and friend, in her workplace, or volunteering, she dots her i’s and crosses her t’s. Gina can be counted on for help, support or to get any job done. Why? Because Gina is giver, not a taker.

Therefore, I highly recommend Gina Arresta as a member of Southampton Village Board. She wants to give back to the village that has been her home for over 30 years. Her qualities would only enhance all at is good about Southampton Village. Her ideas can make Southampton Village even better, because she wants the best for her town and the residents.

The Southampton Village meetings would never be boring, that’s for sure. I’ve sat in many meetings with Gina, and she gets things done.

I have come to know Gina over the years at our parish, the Basilica of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, not only watching her in action through many ministries but specifically through the eighth grade Religious Education program, where we both have volunteered for over 20 years. Gina cares about our youth and helps them realize their worth, value and purpose. She plants seeds to sprout future productive adults. Our youth have gifts and talents to make the world a better place, and it’s people like her that remind them of their obligation to become active stewards in their community.

An important ingredient to the recipe of happiness is to be of service to others. And of all the good qualities I have attested to regarding Gina, I have to say what I admire most about her is her service to others. That’s what we are all called to do, to be of service. She gets it. She walks the walk and talks the talk. Gina knows who she is. Southampton Village would only benefit from having her on their board.

Therefore, it is my privilege to recommend Gina Arresta as an outstanding candidate for the Southampton Village Board. Your vote for her will give Southampton Village an added touch of decency. Gina is the real deal.
