Community Supports Madrone

What do political signs reveal about a candidate? Compare Steve Madrone and incumbent Ryan Sundberg running for Fifth District supervisor.

Much can be learned about a candidate's supporters by the energy and creativity going into political signs, and by their placement.

Notice the wonderful hand-painted plywood signs around McKinleyville, Trinidad and Blue Lake supporting Steve Madrone. Local artists have donated their time and talent. Supplies were offered as personal donations.

Day by day, more Madrone lawn signs appear in the yards of our neighbors.

By contrast, our current Supervisor Sundberg seems to have placed many of his large signs on business-owned properties, including vacant lots with commercial signs saying "lot for sale", "lot for lease" or "acreage to build."

Might sign placements indicate who each of these candidates represents?

If you want a supervisor who will represent all our interests, vote for Steve Madrone on June 5.
