Darden: leave my signs alone
County Legislature Vice Chairman William Darden, D-Hillcrest, is not happy that two signs bearing his name were ripped from the ground this weekend and, in one case, tossed over a fence onto the sidewalk.
Ã‚Â The campaign signs promoted Darden, along with village trustee candidates Joseph Desmaret and Anthony Leon and justice candidate Christine Theodore. He said today that they were ripped out of the ground at his brother’Ã‚Â house and at the home of Deputy Mayor Noramie Jasmin. His brother is village Mayor George Darden.
“I don’t know why it’s just my sign and nobody else’s,” he said.
Ã‚Â And it’s not the first time the family had been targeted. Two years ago, his brother’s campaign signs were not only taken out of the ground but sliced with a sharp object.
Darden said the signs were expensive—and big.Ã‚Â There are a total of six around the district like the ones that were vandalized, each about 4 feet by 8 feet.
