The Clarkstown Police Dept. has corrected its response to an earlier inquiry into campaign sign vandalism in the town. Last week a public relations officer stated there had been no reported complaints.
On Monday, August 29 Clarkstown PD Sgt. Jo Anne Fratianni corrected the record. She stated, “Since August 1 we have taken 13 reports of Trump signs being taken. The total number of signs taken is 21.”
She also said that one Hillary Clinton sign had been reported stolen.
The question of whether the volume of campaign vandalism this year exceeds past presidential seasons will be answered this week.
