Returning from church on Sunday, I noticed only one candidate’s sign upon entering Big Blue Trace from Southern Blvd. That campaign sign belonged to Michelle Santamaria. Monday morning, while entering Southern from Big Blue Trace, I noticed two workers from other candidates putting up their signs. I thought to myself, here we go again. The campaign is getting busy during the final weeks. However, when I returned later in the day, I could no longer see Michelle Santamaria’s sign at all. These men had “covered” and “surrounded” her sign to the extent that her sign was invisible. It was a silly, immature, and unethical act. It makes one wonder about the motives of such candidates and their “workers.” Surely, campaigns can become heated and emotional, but we must remember that the voting public is not stupid. Often your behavior can cause you the votes you are trying to get. We are watching.
