continued Also this week, Mahan said some of her signs near Lisha Kill Road have been stolen. She, again, notched it up to another act during the “silly season.”
“These are the kind of things going on,” she said. “It’s just dirty politics.”
Things aren't any different for Sheehan as she said she has heard reports of her signs being stolen in multiple locations in the town. Once a resident who has a Sheehan sign on their lawn has it stolen, she said she gets a call from them.
“We get several calls a day,” she said. “We just go out and put up new ones.”
It's upsetting, she said, as she doesn't want anyone touching her signs or her opponent's. The signs are a symbol of support for a candidate, she said, and it is something that’s a part of the election season.
“I ask my supporters to not touch my opponent's signs,” she said. “Lawn signs don't win elections, votes do.”
Sheehan has also announced three meetings around town where she hopes to hear from residents of the town about their concerns and their needs for the future of the town.
Those meetings will take place on Oct. 11 at the West Albany Fire Department, Oct. 19 at the Boght Fire Department and Oct. 25 at the Midway Fire Department.
