The recent theft of Izzy Martin’s campaign signs

The recent theft of Izzy Martin’s campaign signs raises a red flag to all District 4 voters who believe in democracy. This is not random vandalism, but an organized act that violates our rights. This year we all tolerated many signs, legally questionable, lacking civility, and personally attacking Izzy. Despite these mean-spirited assaults, Izzy Martin remains steadfast in her beliefs.

Political signs disappear into memory; our vote impacts us for years. I proudly choose Izzy Martin.
