No Lakota Campaign reports missing signs

WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) -
Photos provided to Fox19 by the NO Lakota campaign show signs crumpled up like trash on the side of the road.
 
"We're going to replace them, as they take them, we're not going to stop putting out signs," said Rich Hoffman of the NO Lakota campaign.
 
Hoffman of the NO lakota levy committee says more than 500 "No Lakota levy" signs have been damaged or gone missing in a matter of days.
 
"Because we put them out there, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday of last week, and now they're gone," Hoffman said.
 
Hoffman isn't accusing anyone directly of taking the signs, and he says he understands it's all part of the campaign process, but he says it's frustrating and sends the wrong message to students.
 
"When someone comes and takes your message -- just takes it out of the ground, that's where it gets a little irritating because their signs are still there and ours aren't," Hoffman said.
 
"The levy committee is way too busy to worry about counting yard signs, and we're not in competition with anyone else, our whole goal and focus has been to get the message out," said Sandy Wheatley of the Let's Move Forward committee in favor of the levy.
 
Wheatley says many factors can account for the missing signs.
 
"The wind blows, it rains, no one really knows exactly what happens to signs," Wheatley said.
 
Wheatley said  their focus is getting out the vote, and it's simply premature to point the finger at anyone in regards to the missing signs.
 
"No one can prove who took any signs at all," said Wheatley.
 
The 4.75 mil levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $145 more dollars a year. The district faces a budget shortfall of $13.2 million by 2015, and has cut busing and eliminated 80 teaching positions.
