Candidates for election will do anything, at times, to get noticed. Royal Barber of Sylvania Township in Ohio came up with an idea I would have never thought of. He placed the names of his rivals for the township trustee position on Halloween tombstones in his yard.
Naturally, one of his opponents did not find the humor in it and demanded his name be taken off. There has to be a killjoy for everything. Mr. Barber complied with the request.
Another opponent, Penny Levine, “burst out laughing” when she saw the display.
My elections were always in April. Putting my opponents names on Easter eggs wouldn’t have had the same impact.
Good luck Royal. I can’t vote for you but I hope you win!
Government needs more people with guts and ingenuity.
