WILLIAMSON, W.Va. – One candidate in the upcoming May Primary Election expressed concerns to the Williamson Daily News on election signs being stolen and removed.
Don Stevens, candidate for Mingo County Magistrate, Division Three, is offering a $100 dollar reward for the arrest and conviction of anyone that has been stealing signs from any political candidate.
“If you can’t follow the rules about campaign signs about where you can put them and where you can’t put them, how can you be trusted to work in the public’s best interest?” Stevens said.
“There have been other complaints about signs being stolen. I, personally, have had over 200 signs stolen. So, I am offering a reward of $100 for the arrest and conviction of any person or persons caught stealing signs from any candidate,” Stevens continued.
Stevens believes that the Secretary of State’s Office should be involved.
