Baldwinsville I am writing to you on behalf of the JAM team, namely John Salisbury, Andrew Reeves and Melinda Shimer. We purchased political signs with donations from a number of people in Lysander.
We starting putting the political signs out on Oct. 10, which is within the time limit allowed by law. We place signs where we receive permission and are requested. Each day we find some of our signs missing and some of the larger ones vandalized. It does not seem to be the pranks of children in that the signs being taken or damaged are located in the most strategic places for drivers to see.
Stealing and vandalizing signs is against the law. We asked for the Baldwinsville Police, the County Sheriffs and the New York State Police to be on the lookout for such thefts. We ask our supporters to also be alert for thieves taking our signs. We would hope that those who are responsible understand the gravity of the offense if they are caught and prosecuted. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
Please don’t forget to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Political signs will be taken down, as quickly as possible, on the Nov. 9 and 10.
John Salisbury is a Lysander Supervisor candidate.
