Just a short note to tell you that the candidate team, Cathy Kernen, Marion McKinney, Mat McKnight, Shannon Spencer & Aidsand Wright-Riggins is shocked but not deterred by the vandalizing of Democratic campaign signs throughout the Borough.
The vandalized signs were placed in or on public property where, in most recent election cycles, the signs remained undisturbed during the complete run of campaign events and removed at the close of the election, Primary and/or General.
I sent a message to our Police Chief to update him about the destruction and our Mayoral candidate, Aidsand Wright-Riggins filed a report with the department. Our Borough is fortunate to have a community oriented, professional police department that acted promptly to take the necessary report.
Now, with the destruction of our campaign signs, it seems as if members of the community or perhaps passersby have chosen to act immaturely and maliciously in an attempt to suppress bona fide local campaign activity.
It has never been the case, nor will it be in the future, where our Collegeville Democratic campaigns for elected office, include willful, mean-spirited, childish, vandalism that undermines genuine civic activity.
We have a strong slate of qualified, high energy candidates dedicated to serving all Borough residents. Our team will continue to knock on doors, interact with voters and advance the campaign messages in a professional, upbeat manner as this helps promote positive community spirit and goodwill.
Our campaign signs have been re-ordered! Expect an update about delivery early next week. Thank you for supporting Cathy, Marion, Mat, Shannon and Aidsand!
