Candidate’s sign stolen

NDP candidate's sign missing from several lawns in the Town of Ponoka.

Dear Editor,

Recently my “DOUG HART” election sign was stolen off my lawn in the dark of night. I understand a similar thing is happening in other parts of Ponoka.

I have wondered if they might have been taken by disillusioned and frustrated members of other parties, embarrassed over their own candidates or their party’s election promises. Perhaps they wish to support Doug in a surreptitious manner, as well as obtain a keepsake of his campaign.

It would be so much easier if they just called me to ask for a sign. I would gladly deliver and mount the sign in the light of day, thus saving them any blame or embarrassment.
