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.”
Clough claims that she has spoken to other people who are running for town council, including ones who have signs posted within a few feet of her own, who have not had them stolen. For this reason, Clough and Gledhill have both ruled out random, un-targeted vandalism.
“I don’t think it’s kids. I don’t think kids care about our signs,” said Clough. “The signs are not that cool. As cool as I think they are, they’re not that cool. It’s not quite as random as you’d think. I’m getting signs stolen from nice neighborhoods.”
