Presiding Officer Norma L. Gonsalves welcomed contestants of the Miss Wantagh 2015 pageant to the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola. The Miss Wantagh pageant is about a teen representative with a desire to better her community and be a voice of her peers, while meeting officials from various levels of government. Keri Balnis, a resident of Wantagh, was crowned Miss Wantagh 2015.
“I am glad to see these young women taking a greater part in their community,” said Presiding Officer Gonsalves. “I wish them all the best.”
