Candidate education 101 says that if you have campaign signs, someone is going to mess with at least some of them.
When that happens, unless you have a candidate on tape messing with another candidate’s signs, write it off as a cost of campaigning and be a big boy about it.
Cocoa Mayor Henry Parrish apparently has not learned these basic lessons. He recently placed a sign near the property of an opponent’s supporter. The supporter, saying the sign was banging up against his building, removed it and threw it on the ground.
Parrish has this on video and tried to make a mountain out of this molehill in the press and social media. It doesn’t help him that the supporter is likely Brevard’s most powerful lobbyist!
His opponent pointed to how such things are handled as being an indicator of how one will serve the people.
At least one person in the race has gotten down the basics.
