SOUTH KINGSTOWN â 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.
âItâs getting ridiculous,â said Clough on Monday. âItâs getting to the point where I replenish them and then they are gone. If you donât like somebody, you donât need to vote for them, but stealing is never good.â
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.
âI donât think itâs kids. I donât think kids care about our signs,â said Clough. âThe signs are not that cool. As cool as I think they are, theyâre not that cool. Itâs not quite as random as youâd think. Iâm getting signs stolen from nice neighborhoods.â
