Letter: Campaign Signs Borrowed

Letter: Campaign Signs Borrowed

To the Editor:

One of our Old Town neighbors had such a burning desire to exhibit their support for Councilmembers Del Pepper and Paul Smedberg, as well as nomination aspirant Justin Wilson, last Saturday evening, that they pilfered our yard signs so they could exhibit them. That is the conclusion we came to since nobody in Alexandria would interfere with our First Amendment rights. While elated that a neighbor wished to signal their support for these outstanding candidates, we are forced to tell one and all that if they call the candidates (they are all listed in the local phone directory) they will deliver them their own signs and hence leave ours alone.
