Political sign waving in Chester

SIGN WAVING ON THE GREEN: Democratic incumbents running for re-election to the Vermont State House — Sens. Alison Clarkson and Dick McCormack and Rep. Tom Bock — wave campaign signs last Thursday on the Green in Chester, as well as campaign for the Democratic presidential Biden/Harris ticket. Joining them later in the day was incumbent Sen. Alice Nitka, also up for re-election, and a small group of supporters. Meanwhile, in the inset photo, a voter expressing support for Republican President Donald Trump puts up a flag outside her business. Running for Senate seats for the same district are Republicans Michael Jasinski Sr. and Jack Williams and Independents Keith Stern, Mason Wade and Doug Wilberding.

    Call the police jaywalkers everywhere. Let’s arrest all who disagree with the wave.
    Where do we live anyway? I thought we lived in the United States of America 🇺🇸 🤔

    This really is a safe and friendly town by and large. However, you will find on both ends of the bell curve those who are not.

    Some of the comments on this website are very enlightening to a person that had hoped to find a safe, friendly town to settle in.

    Beverly Hart: IF you agreed with her, you wouldnt think so. So obviously you dont agree with her ‘right’ to express her opinion. Sad. but nothing less than I’d expect! Sad, very sad.

    Alison Clarkson certainly didn’t do herself any favors when she jaywalked in front of me to get to her station at the corner of Main and School streets last week.

    There’s a crosswalk nearby, Ms. Clarkson and Vermont law is clear regarding pedestrian crossings. Your decision to take a shortcut, while perhaps somewhat trivial, could be taken by some as an indication that you believe yourself to be above the law. Shame on you!

    In my opinion only, I don’t think it is a good idea for a business to put up political signs.
