"Sign Gate" Mystery Solved!
Doug Matayo and Drew Griffin signs sit in a collection pile for improperly placed signs at the Arkansas Highway Department's facility on Highway 112 near Fayetteville. This is one of many such area facilities where improperly displayed signs are deposited.
Recently the Holt Campaign has had to endure hysterical claims from supporters of Representative Doug Matayo that Holt supporters had been stealing signs . Of course, the Holt campaign did not take down Matayo's signs and replace them with their own. We do think we know who took down the Matayo signs though. These photos were taken today. We think if the Matayo campaign will check at the four Arkansas Highway Department facilities in the area they will find their missing signs.
Here is an example of improper sign placement. This is at an insurance agency in Bentonville. The sign is closer to the road than the telephone poles. Any sign closer to the road than the telephone poles is considered in the public easement and is removed by state highway department personnel. Will this be the next sign that they claim is "stolen by Holt supporters" once Highway Department Personnel make a sweep through the area?
