ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

Brad Cerenzia works from his home in South Park – which makes it easy to keep an eye on the neighborhood.

It’s not that he has an axe to grind. He simply wants to protect the community where he has lived for a number of years, a place and a population that he has grown to love.

When Cerenzia has a few minutes to take a break from his day job, he hops on his bike and cruises the streets.

He’s on a mission to remove fliers that have been stapled to street posts that feature a number to call “for fast deportation of illegal immigrants.”

And when Cerenzia tears down a sign, he replaces it with one of his own, reading “Welcome to South Park. Wherever you’re from, we’re glad you’re our neighbor.”

Cerenzia posts copies of the flier in Spanish and Vietnamese as well.

It all started three or four weeks ago, when Cerenzia learned about the first sign on Facebook.

A few neighbors banded together to discuss what to do.

“We decided as a group to tear it down,” Cerenzia said. “We also wanted to counter this person’s posts.”
