Nashua candidates fear campaign signs stolen or vandalized
Candidates running for office in Nashua are concerned their campaign signs are going missing and perhaps being vandalized.
According to The Telegraph in Nashua, Steve Negron, a Republican from Ward 5 and Patricia Klee, a Democrat running in Ward 3, say their signs are being stolen and in one instance possibly being "mutilated with a knife."
There are several conditions concerning removal of political signs, including where they are placed. New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner said no one is charged with monitoring signs and the rules governing their use.
"I don't know why anyone would do that to me," Negron told the newspaper. "That's not the way Nashuans should express their political views."
Candidate Klee wrote in a letter, "I know that we live in a political climate of angry rhetoric, but the removing of a political sign is not a game nor acceptable freedom of speech."
