Heavy Weather Damages Campaign Signs



Bookmark and Share

During the fierce winds on Thursday, if you happened to see some campaign signs blowing across town, don’t worry the candidates were on it.

Don Haggar, a House candidate running for District 10, which covers Brandon, areas of Sioux Falls and Renner, said there's one thing to blame for damages to he and his daughter Jenna's, campaign signs, the “good old South Dakota wind.”

Which has caused political figures to fix or replace signs in the cold and rain.

"They're almost bent over to the ground or the prongs are bent," said Haggar.

Not only have the candidates stayed busy fixing crooked or bent sides, they say they have a fear these signs will blow into a nearby neighbor's yard, causing an annoyance.

"That's my biggest fear," said Hausman.

For Haggar's challenger, Jo Hausman, she said she and her significant other Carl, check her signs everyday and to of course to keep them out of neighbors yards.

For one Brandon resident, Amber Larsen, she said she's used to whatever the wind blows her way.

"Oh yea, we pick up stuff from blocks away, trying to figure out where it goes," said Larsen.

For both Haggar and Hausman, they said chasing their signs around District 10,is just another duty of the job, rain or shine.

"We just do what we have to do to get the job done, come rain, snow, sleet, whatever, we get it done," said Hausman.

"We're sorry and if we can help collect them, contact us, we'll be happy to do what we can," said Haggar.

Despite what the weather brings, campaign signs will be up until the general election on November 6th.
