At first glance, this seems like one more instance of a Westporter stealing campaign signs. Not cool, but unfortunately not out of the ordinary either.
Last night around 7 p.m., an alert “06880” reader was driving on Greens Farms Road. At the intersection with Hillspoint, he saw a silver Subaru pulled over on Hillspoint. The hazard lights were on, and the rear door opened.
A man pulled a bunch of political signs out of the back of the car, and dumped them on the ground.
Here’s where the tale gets interesting. A photo — taken this morning — shows the pile:
It includes campaign signs for Republicans and Democrats — along with one for the Community Nursery School.
So the skunk-like thief/litterer was not out to create political mischief.
He just doesn’t like lawn signs, period.
So he took the law into his own hands.
