Twice now a very competent and experienced candidate for president of Marietta City Council, Joshua Schlicher, has had his sign, which he ask permission to place in our yard, vandalized. This time, however, I reported it to the Marietta Police Department as well as to Josh.
Now we will be watching, and if, or when, I catch the vandal, I will prosecute to the full extent of the law. It is an immature and mean spirited display of ignorance. In my opinion, anyone caught defacing any political signs should be beaten to within an inch of his/her life with a spatula, which is my particular weapon of choice. Watch out, because we will be.
