Don’t remove political signs

What do you do if you have time on your hands and don’t believe one political party will benefit you as much as the other? One thing some do is remove signs of the other political party. 

That is what one prominent insurance executive does. Because his wife inherited property along a city street, he believes he owns the road. He removes the signs from the right-of-way. If this is what he truly believes, he will probably put a fence down the middle of the road, or put up a toll booth to charge people to drive on it.

I don’t know if his name was included in the property transfer or not. Who does own the street and right-of-way? I was told the city does. 

While he takes down Obama signs, I see he has a Romney sign by his driveway. The Carroll County Democrats bought and paid for the Obama signs. They are our property. 

We have had many Obama signs stolen. We do not approve of the taking of Republican signs. I am sure that the Carroll County Republican Party does not approve, either.

There are few who have little respect for other people’s property. They believe they are above reproach. I believe this to be the case here. Why do some people resort to these types of action? I believe most of the time, it is for personal gain.

This is my opinion. What is yours? 

Note to readers – Gerald L. Bork is chairman of the Carroll County Democratic Party.
