Ersel Schuster, et al, Complain about County Czar Supporters Deliberately Posting their Signs Next to Republican Candidates’ Signs
A press release from McHenry County Board member Ersel Schuster:
“This press release is to give notice that recent actions by those individuals working for the county executive referendum question are intentionally placing their signs next to many GOP candidates’ campaign signs.
“These workers/supporters are intentionally misleading the public into believing these candidates support their referendum.
“This is NOT grounded in truth.
“Further, these candidate’s campaign sign locations have been approved by property owners for the candidates and not for the referendum signs.
“It is strongly suggested that you remove your signs from these private properties and/or from the vicinity of GOP candidate signs and refrain from deliberately deceiving the public.”
Schuster is not the only to note that Jack Franks’ supporters are implementing this strategy.
A Woodstock County Board member told me of a confrontation with Franks in which he was told to take down the “Vote Yes” signs from property of a Republican Precinct Committeeman and an attorney who opposes the concentration of power referendum initiated and promoted by Franks.
Even citizens with GOP signs on their property are taking action.
Just pulling up the “Vote Yes” signs from their properties.
Here’s what the property owner wrote:
“A neighbor called to let me know that a ‘Vote Yes for Exec. Govt.’ sign had been put on our property that faces on Hwy. 14 just south east of Harvard.
“I’m attaching a couple of photos.
“There are already a couple of candidate signs on that property which were placed there with my consent.
“The ‘Vote Yes’ sign was certainly NOT granted permission to be placed there.
“I have to wonder how many other people have these dreadful signs on their property without their consent.
“This action certainly speaks very poorly of Mr. Franks and all those who support him in his effort to create a Exec. form of County government in our county.
“As you may guess, the sign is no longer on our property.”
