March 9, 2018 – In less than three days after political campaign signs could be displayed, as many as 5 yard signs and one large 2 ‘x 5’ Dan Miller, District 3 Supervisor signs are missing and presumed stolen from private property along Ridge Road , Sierra College Drive, Ventana Ridge Place and Hughes Road in Grass Valley. The number of missing signs could increase as campaign workers contact property owners.
“This is especially discouraging after reaching out on social media, where I asked those who may not support me, or any other candidate to leave campaign signs where they have been placed. I am disappointed to find my message of good manners and polite discourse has fallen on deaf ears,” Dan Miller commented on Friday.
Patti Ingram Spencer, a native of Nevada County and manager of the Miller Campaign, stated: “Campaign signs are not cheap and represent what use to be an exercise in free speech, which apparently is no longer honored by other campaigns or supporters of opposition candidates. Besides the time, energy and money to replace signs as requested by private property owners , these actions are annoying and childish. Anyone having knowledge as to the location of the missing signs can call Dan’s campaign office, my home, at 477-7572.”
