( POCATELLO , ID ) – Campaign signs for incumbent Pocatello Mayor Brian Blad are turning up missing. Blad estimates that he’s lost well over two dozen signs already, with dozens more being vandalized. It’s a misdemeanor in Idaho to tamper with campaign signs, and it’s a felony if the damage exceeds $1,000. Blad is concerned because many of the signs are on private property, and that the vandalism also shows disrespect to homeowners who display them. Blad’s opponents have also noticed the signs being damaged, and are urging residents follow the law and voice their opinions in the voting booths next Tuesday.
