Letter to the Editor: Mayor Should Condemn Acts of Sign Vandalism

To the Editor:
The Middletown Insider recently posted a press release, “Republican Signs Vandalized in Middletown.”
It says that last Saturday morning, Middletown Republicans awoke to the widespread destruction of candidate yard signs, ranging in value from $7 to more than $800.
On Sunday, I asked Mayor Drew to publicly call for an end to this mean-spirited and childish behavior on Facebook. To date; he has yet to do so. Again, I call upon him to condemn these acts of vandalism.
This is not the first campaign season where this sort of thing has happened, and to my knowledge, Republican candidates have been the exclusive victims. Our former mayor, Sebastian Giuliano, would not tolerate this sort of behavior, nor will our future mayor, Sandra Russo-Driska.
Sandra and the entire Republican underticket strongly believe that while we may disagree from time to time, it is incumbent upon us to treat our political opponents with dignity and respect. After all, at the end of the day we are still neighbors, friends and family.

Member, Middletown Republican Town Committee
