Candidate signs vandalized with hate messages


“This is just hateful and not what we do in the North Country. We can disagree on issues but not this way. And it is disrespectful to people in those communities.”


Both Carpenter and Bisso denied any involvement in the vandalism and denounced the perpetrators.

“I think this is just horrible, and I don’t support it in any way whatsoever,” Bisso said.

“This kind of thing has no place in politics, and it is inconceivable that this happened. I feel badly about it, and I hope they find out who did it.”

Carpenter said he hopes this will be the last of the vandalism.

“This is too bad. The voters should decide based on merit not something like this,” he said.

“Fortunately, I think the majority of voters are smart enough not to be swayed by what is written on

some signs.”
