Dirty campaigning

November 4, 2015

I have been a resident of the Town of Highland for many, many years. Never have I seen such unethical dealings in election campaigning. I placed a sign at the bottom of my driveway endorsing Chuck Petersheim for supervisor. It was removed by an unknown source and replaced with a sign endorsing another candidate, without my permission or knowledge.

It baffles me as to how anyone in our town can endorse a candidate who hasn’t uttered one word stating his intentions if elected. What I know about Jeff Haas is what most of us who aren’t his buddies know—nothing. If I want to place a sign on my driveway endorsing a candidate, I should have that right. Is this the unscrupulous way our town will be run if Chuck isn’t elected?
