Clough-Gledhill political signs stolen

August 20, 2014

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – A disproportionate amount of political signs supporting Rachel Clough and Liz Gledhill for South Kingstown Town Council have gone missing or have been found destroyed in the past few weeks. The duo, who decided to run together to save campaign money, have had to order more signs twice since their initial purchase of 100, printed at $5 per.
“It’s getting ridiculous,” said Clough on Monday. “It’s getting to the point where I replenish them and then they are gone. If you don’t like somebody, you don’t need to vote for them, but stealing is never good.”
