So Trustee Harris thinks those candidates are just driving by and not picking up their yard signs? Harris has never ran county-wide. Those candidates all ran in a district that takes up 83% of the county. They have thousand of signs all over the county. They don't have organizations to pick them up. They are probably doing all the work themselves and I'm sure would appreciate Harris getting his lazy butt out of the car and helping other politicians out with this task rather than publicly ridicule them in the social media.

By the way, I am still seeing judge candidate signs. I'm also seeing Sheriff Layton, Mark Brown and Andre Carson signs. Do they get singled out by Harris? Nope.

Is this a serious response or in jest? I have worked with Andy and those in Wayne Township on several races both Township and County wide. I would think that you may know someone in Wayne Township that has worked with him as well. Andy is a hard working man who happens to be a Republican. Believe it or not that's why he asked the REPUBLICAN candidates to pick up their signs. Ridiculous.

James, it's not in jest at all. Well my dig at Andy for being "lazy" was just that a dig. Nonetheless, I have no respect for Andy going on social media to criticize these candidates who undoubtedly are doing all they can in the Herculean task of picking up thousands of yard signs that are distributed at unknown locations throughout the county. Those candidates often have virtually no one to help them pick up signs after the election.

All of us involved in the political process, including Andy Harris, should get involved and help these countywide candidates pick up their yard signs, not taking to social media to take cheap shots at them. They made enormous sacrifices to be candidates and we ought to thank them for being part of the political process and help them get their signs up. It's the least we can do.

I'm sure if Andy ever ran for countywide office he would understand EXACTLY what I'm talking about. His signs would certainly still be up too. There is a heck of a big difference between running in a township and running countywide when it comes to picking up yard signs. There isn't a countywide candidate out there who has all his/her yard signs up now and he wouldn't be any different.
