A "collage" of Republican Party campaign signs located in the town of Woodruff were destroyed over the weekend, according to GOP officials who reported the damage to the Woodruff Police Department.
According to Oneida County Republican Party Chairman Andy Loduha, who contacted The Times via email, the "collage of posters that we have installed in many locations throughout Oneida County [is] for our candidates for President/Vice-President Romney/Ryan; Tommy Thompson for U.S. Senate; Sean Duffy for U.S. Representative; Tom Tiffany for 12th District State Senate; and Rob Swearingen for State Representative of the 34th Assembly District.
The signs in this photograph were located at along Highway 47 at Piene Bay Road in Woodruff.
On Monday, Oct. 8, party volunteers planned to remove the destroyed signs and replace them with new signs.
"We will also install no trespassing signs at the site, as well as infrared motion detector cameras, to photograph any future vandalism," Loduha said.
The Lakeland Times has not heard of any destruction of Democratic Party signs, but in an effort to get both sides of this political season story, we will be contacting Democratic Party leadership for their take on the issue and will include a story update in the Friday, Oct. 12, edition.
