Political Signs Defaced

Mayoral candidate George Babcock’s signs were defaced Friday night by vandals. The camping removed the signs along rt. 69 and 322 early Saturday morning as soon as they became aware of the vandalism. Profanity was sprayed on them, apparently carrying an obscenity, according to the Waterbury Republican-American. If anyone sees any more damaged signs, please call Mr. Babcock’s campaign or the Wolcott Police Department. Police are investigating.

It is sad that while parts of this year’s campaign have become tense, that it has stooped to this level. No candidate would tolerate this behavior regardless of affiliation. Ideas and proposals should be weighed on their own merit by individuals, but to degrade their right to present them in the public arena is disrespectful to all those running because the same could occur to them in the future. Mr. Babcock has served the town and its youth as a softball coach, concerned citizen and a Town Council member and Chairman for many years. If you have any information, please contact the police department or campaign.
