Letter: Playing Games With Signs

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.

  1. The political signs become such an unpleasant, but necessary, part of the political landscape. Alas, the Santamaria campaign has been placing yard signs in private yards without permission. Regrettably he is also a perpetrator of the crimes he condemns others for. I took two off my lot last week that were never requested and then again two this week from another of my lots.

  2. Yes, that is what I observed about the opponents’ sign battle. There were also 3 political signs at Wellington Trace and Big Blue Trace for days and a Mark Pafford political sign on Stribling Road near Castellina and Trader Joe’s.

    Don’t vote for Pafford if he can’t control his sign installers who ignore Wellington’s political sign prohibitions.

    Don’t vote for candidates If they are playing aggressively with their political signage. The political sign battle indicates their infantile behavior and is reflective of their candidacy.
