Please respect your neighbor’s signs

Letter to the Editor

One of the oldest, tried and true, forms of political support is still the political yard sign --from our friends and neighbors running for local offices to state candidates to the highest profile political party nominees running for president. We see the signs in yards and throughout our communities.


I take this form of political backing and allegiance very serious and was surprised when 20-plus of my signs along with a very large and expensive banner were taken over the last week.

There is a reason that removing political signs is against the law, it is theft - not just of the signs, but also of my freedom of speech. If you disagree with me, then exercise your democratic right to vote against me at the ballot box. Democracy is seriously undermined when people take it upon themselves to suggest through their actions that I do not have the right to promote my campaign. Let us at least be respectful at the local level and leave those signs in the ground. Send your message at the polls, not through simple theft.

I am happy to talk with anyone about why I am running for state representative. All I ask is that we simply respect private property and political differences, for all levels and for all candidates. Instead of stealing signs, let us start a conversation. For starters go to my website at www.Negron4NH.com. We might be surprised by what we can learn from one another.

More than just a sign of the times

More than just a sign of the times


Telegraph Editorial

If it is election time in New Hampshire, there's at least one unfortunate guarantee: too many campaign signs will get destroyed faster than old Halloween pumpkins on Nov. 1.
This is a problem that comes every election cycle, and it is a bipartisan issue.


Patricia Klee, of Ward 3, seeking one of her district's seats in the New Hampshire House, said she and her fellow Democrats have had signs stolen.


"I know that we live in a political climate of angry rhetoric, but the removing of a political sign is not a game nor acceptable freedom of speech," Klee wrote.


Republican Steve Negron, of Ward 5, has seen more than 30 of his lawn signs stolen, knocked over or vandalized. One of his campaign signs was allegedly "mutilated" with a knife, he said.


"I don't know why anyone would do that to me," he told The Telegraph on Wednesday. "That's not the way Nashuans should express their political views."


Hollis resident Wayne Bellan had a large, double-sided Donald Trump sign stolen from his front yard in May. He had another one that was set ablaze in the middle of the night.


"They stole that one about three weeks ago," Bellan said of the double-sided sign. "But lighting (the banner) on fire? That's a little crazy."


While many of these destroyed signs have a political agenda behind them, there have been cases across the country that come down to just juvenile hooliganism.


Nevertheless, vandalizing or removing these signs without authorization is against the law. In New Hampshire, there is a $1,000 fine for people who remove signs in addition to possible vandalism charges.


New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner even said people "have been arrested for removing signs."


There is little law enforcement can do to prevent these petty crimes, save witness a suspect in the act. Ultimately, it comes down to people respecting the political leanings of their neighbors.


Having a one-on-one conversation with them is a much more mature approach than mutilating a yard sign.


"If there's an issue with my signs, they should discuss that with me," Negron said.

Steve Negron, Candidate for NH State Representative, takes a novel approach to reach Voters

Nashua, NH- NH State Representative Candidate Steve Negron, NH District 32/Nashua Ward 5, is “riding the bus” to connect with voters.

On September 7, 2016, Negron will ride, for the 2nd time, on the Nashua Transit System (Big Blue) Routes 4 and 8, which includes a good portion of Ward 5, in order to meet and discuss the issues and concerns on the minds of voters.


Negron commented “Taking this approach has provided me the opportunity to not only speak with voters regarding the issues I am most concerned with, but it also provides me the opportunity to receive immediate feedback from the voters on issues that are also important to them.” Negron continued, “The more I hear directly from voters, the better I can serve them as a State Representative in Concord.”

Negron’s main concerns include:

  • Overhauling NH Voter Registration Law
  • Improving Veteran’s Support on the State level
  • Tackling the Opioid Crisis
  • Improving the business environment in the State.  


As a result of the bus rides already taken, Negron has learned a great deal about the diverse concerns from voters in his District/Ward, thus making him a more voter connected voice in Concord.


Steve Negron will be riding the buses on September 7, 2016. When you see him; express your concerns.  Steve Negron is a Candidate who is willing to listen to all voters.
