During an election, one of the ways candidates can market and create name recognition is through yard signs. Voters need to know you are running.
I have been volunteering for Lisa Parshley, who is running for Olympia City Council position #5. I have spent many hours doorbelling with Lisa and placing her campaign signage around town. On more than one occasion signs that I placed around town, including signs that are placed at Lisa’s business, have disappeared the day after they have been placed. What is strange is that the other political signage remains, just hers are gone. I have gone back and replaced missing signs, or found new spots for her signs, only to find them gone within 24 hours of placement. One evening a couple of weeks ago I placed 10 signs and all 10 were gone the very next day.
Lisa Parshley is resilient and is getting her name and message out there regardless, but I hate to see this kind of thing creep into our local elections. It is disheartening. Who is responsible for this signage hijack? I don’t know, but I do know that Lisa Parshley is working hard to earn your vote. She cares deeply about this community, has a successful business here, is an environmentalist, a humanitarian, and believes in working together across differences. I hope you’ll support her by helping spread the word about her campaign, and her tremendous qualifications.
