Mayoral candidate responds to sign theft

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Cedar Rapids mayoral candidate, Ron Corbett, is responding to the theft of hundreds of his campaign yard signs over the weekend.

"Yard signs use a lot of time and money in a campaign, that's why it's so disappointing to see that hundreds of our signs have been stolen from yards during the dark of night," said Corbett. "We don't know who did this, but our message is simple: this campaign will not be slowed by those who think they can prevent the voice of the people from being heard."

The campaign estimates that between 200 and 300 signs were taken, about 1/3 of the posted signs.

"We are asking for people to keep an eye out for the signs so that we can recover them if possible. We are hoping that a business or homeowner will find them disposed of somewhere and if so, we may be able to salvage some of them," said Corbett.

Anyone who finds the signs are asked to call 319-573-5050 or visit the campaign Web site at to send a message.
