Today’s sign of divisive times?

I have noticed the signage around town regarding our current mayoral race. They are seemingly everywhere.

One mayoral candidate upped the ante by adding a new addendum to her signs that says, “5 out of 7 council members” endorse her. I was rather offended actually.

Council members are also elected officials. To use the endorsement of fellow members of our town council as a campaign slogan is unfortunate. It is also divisive.

It would seem the stakes for this election are high with a “no holds barred” mentality.

I want our council members to be impartial and interested in the problems and business of our community. I don’t know who I am voting for just yet, but this candidate has taken a step in the wrong direction in my opinion.
