From Wayne in #BTV #VT…
I’m disappointed that each of the last three days someone has pulled down a campaign sign we had for Deb Markowitz in front of our house on North Prospect Street. Today, the sign was swiped. Regardless of who I (or you) support, this kind of political vandalism is disturbing and uncalled for. It’s very uncharacteristic of Burlington, and I hope if the person who did this is reading this message, they return the sign with an apology.
And minutes after getting the word out via FPF, he posted a follow-up with some good news…
Front Porch Forum postings work fast! My two missing Deb Markowitz signs were spotted next to a post office box on Loomis Street by State Rep. Kesha Ram after she saw my message on FPF. She graciously returned them, and told me that several of her campaign signs have also been swiped. Ripping out candidates’ signs or defacing them is just plain wrong and disrespectful. In any event, thanks Kesha!
