The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Please respect political signs


To The Eagle:

It has come to the attention of the Republican and Democratic Parties that political signs are being stolen. The first thing that comes to mind is teenagers on a lark. It is hoped that misguided youth are responsible, but it must be stopped.

Political signs are staples of American campaigns. If you remove political signs, you are guilty of stealing and a misdemeanor. Posting political signs is the property owner’s First Amendment Right to Freedom of Speech. Political signs are also a way for candidates to reach large audiences of voters. This is more important right now as large in-person gatherings are not allowed due to Covid 19. Each sign represents at least 10 votes so removing them is costly to the candidate.

Thanks for respecting political signs. Remember to vote in the primary. Ballots are postage paid. Please remember to sign the envelope.

Joel McEntire,

Wahkiakum County Republican Chairman

David Zabel,

Wahkiakum County Democratic Chairman
