Theft of signs in 5th District race advertises disregard for others

Recently, Eric Michielssen yard signs were stolen in select neighborhoods around Santa Margarita. Eric Michielssen is challenging Debbie Arnold for 5th District supervisor on a platform of tolerance, civility and fact-based decision-making that considers the needs of all residents. If yard signs are any indication, Michielssen has strong support within the community of Santa Margarita.

If damaging others’ property, trespassing and obstructing democracy is the best argument you can make for your choice for county supervisor, your campaign is in trouble. Childish acts might make you feel better, but they only serve to advertise your haughty disregard for others. Trying to intimidate and silence Michielssen’s supporters under cover of darkness only strengthens our resolve. Friends and neighbors of Santa Margarita, and all of District 5, come together in voting for Eric Michielssen on June 7 to bring some much-needed common sense and basic decency back to the 5th District.
