Burning signs prompt visit to commissioner

Burning campaign signs in a Peabody street Monday night prompted a knock on county commissioner Randy Dallke’s door.

Peabody officer Megan Chizek found four Dallke campaign signs burning in the 300 block of W. 1st St. about 11 p.m.

After putting out the fire, she went to Dallke’s house to check on him.

Dallke said he was inside watching TV when the fire was started.

“I guess it was four signs,” Dallke said. “They took them about 150 feet west of my house and burned them.”

Dallke declined to guess who might have started the fire.

“That’s all right, they’re expressing their happiness with me,” he said.
