Motivated campaign workers

Whether T. Stroger’s campaign is “descend[ing] into chaos,” with his declining to appear with Peraica on various shows, one thing is clear in OP: his signs are popping up all over — but not on private property!  Few citizens want them, but someone is planting them on various parkways and stretches of publicly tended grass.  Yes.  Soon there will be a sea of them on the village green of Scoville Park, where frisbee is played, but not this year.  The public-minded citizens who plant signs on public property may be county employees or they may not be.  Readers are asked to decide.

Jim:

I'm shocked to find out that Democrats might be using taxpayer employees to do political campaign work. Shocked!

I think we may see an upset for Cook County Board President and they are starting to get worried.

I hope that there is going to be an upset, a Republican Board President. As a former County worker, woooooow

Ghosts, goblins, ghouls. These Halloween terrors are tame. The most frightening thing I've seen is a Todd Stroger for CC President sign. So forget the witches, skeletons, and spiderwebs. To really scare those trick-or-treaters (and their parents), plant a Stroger sign on your front lawn. EEEK!
