Political sign defacings starting early in Door County

Local law enforcement is already dealing with numerous defacings and thefts of political signs on private property.  Door County Deputy Sheriff Pat McCarty reminds people that those actions are against the law.   He says he can appreciate people being passionate about politics, but one must be respectful in the process.



A President Donald Trump sign was reportedly vandalized early Wednesday morning on Gordon Road in Sturgeon Bay when someone spray-painted 'no' with a heart in red paint.  McCarty adds that all signage must be placed on private property.  He notes that missing signs may be the result of placing them on right-of-ways of highways which is not permitted and can be removed by county personnel.
