Please don't vandalize candidate's signs

We are just a couple of guys frustrated at having the campaign signs we’ve put up repeatedly stolen. Other candidates’ signs just a few feet away have not been touched.

As a last resort, on our own initiative, we’ve hung a few signs from tree branches, out of easy reach, at some of the vandalism sites. We don’t want this to be misunderstood: It is not a frivolous gesture, nor does it suggest disrespect toward our neighbors or the environment.

Such signs proclaim our frustration with, and deep disrespect for, the cowardly freedom-haters that persist in this methodical vandalism. We will collect all our signs on Nov. 3. We hope that the stolen property, now totaling over 40 of Rich Peterson’s signs, will not be found in some ditch.
