Campaign signs stolen from yards

Staff writer

Every election cycle people find campaign signs stolen from their lawns.

One Marion resident put out two signs, then found one missing the next morning.

“I put it out one day, and by the next day I looked out to see the lovely work my friend did on my lawn because my husband is in the hospital, and the sign was gone,” Margaret Wilson said.

The signs supported Biden and Harris. Wilson said she doesn’t know why the theft happened to her.

“It’s kind of brave to come on somebody’s lawn,” she said. “My dad was a school administrator and a very smart man. One of the things he said was, ‘Sometimes people who are afraid of losing their power also fear knowledge.’ ”
