Measure B Proponents Vandalize West-end Lawn Signs

Political lawn signs are a cherished tradition in Alameda. So too, sadly, is lawn sign vandalism, as one west-end resident opposed to Measure B found out Tuesday night.

Sam Mayhew, who lives at Alameda Point, wrote Action Alameda News to report that on Tuesday Night, sometime between 8:40pm and 8:50pm, “someone came up on my lawn” and tried to rip up my lawn sign. The vandals and trespassers managed only to twist the metal frame “into a pretzel.”

Mayhew sent photos of the sign, as well as a “don’t tread on me” flag that he attached to his sign, and which he encourages Measure B opponents to attach to any signs that have been vandalized. Mayhew writes “Every vandalized sign resurrected with a ‘don’t tread on me’ flag will let people know how far the corporate interests are willing to go for their multi-million dollar giveaway.”

    Good to see that valiant sign fought back and managed to remain a defiant pretzel. What a non-story.

    How about all the no on B signs lining Tilden Way? Aren’t they on public property?

  • The Misfit

    What evidence do you have that it was Yes on B person that vandalized this sign, and not just some hooligan? Nice unfounded accusation, stay classy guys.

  • This is not the only report – we have others. This is the only person that wanted to be quoted for attribution. In all cases, no vandalism beyond disfiguring, defacing or stealing the sign. Doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to figure out who’s behind it.
