Flap over campaign signs

October 23, 2013

In early October, Town of Lumberland Supervisor Nadia Rajsz planted one of her political signs in my yard, probably without knowing who owned the land, since I had just recently purchased it. Since it’s my property and I don’t support her candidacy, I took it down, which is fully within my rights.

Two weeks later I get a call from the Lumberland constable looking for the sign, and all I could think was how amateurish it was to waste the time of a policeman instead of picking up the phone herself. The constable is an employee of the town, and Supervisor Rajsz tasked him with harassing someone she didn’t care for.

Abusing her authority and attempting to intimidate townspeople is nothing new to this supervisor.
