Residents express concern over missing campaign signs

An increasing number of local residents are coming forward with concern at finding their Obama campaign signs disappearing from their front yards – several, more than once.

Most of the missing signs appear to be in yards and lots in Barranca Mesa.

“We have had two Obama signs stolen from our yard, the first last Saturday night, Sept. 13, and the second last night, Sept. 20,” said Kyle Wheeler, wife of County Councilor Mike Wheeler. “I don’t know if last night’s action was widespread like last weekend’s was, but I reported both incidents to the police and urge you to do the same if you have a sign stolen. Someone doesn’t believe in free speech and property rights for me.”

County Council candidate Manuel Baca expressed his dismay in a recent Letter to the Editor in the Monitor. He has had several of his campaign signs removed or damaged in the last week, he said.

“It’s quite obvious that there are some people that don’t believe in free speech, property rights or change in this community, Baca said.

“I’ll just keep putting them back up, and remember your voice is just as powerful as a sign so the best way we can get the job done is to spread the word throughout the county that change can be a good thing in Washington and Los Alamos.”
