KLEPT, Gattuso name on signs becomes an issue [W]

Part of winning elections is to increase the candidate's name recognition.

The Village of Westchester voted to put some signs up, but Village President Paul Gattuso decided to add his name to the signs after the resolution was passed. See Westchester Public Affairs (Rick Fox).

Westchester Herald (David Pollard):
Westchester Village President Paul Gattuso said he doesn't see anything wrong with the way the banners would look. "I thought it would be nice to put my name on one sign and the board of trustees on the other," he said. "I didn't think it would be a big deal. Every banner usually has the president or mayor's name on it. I thought it would look cool and show some unity."

Elected officials wanting to look cool? Wanting unity?

Looking cool and dishonestly pushing unity on the taxpayers' dime are not "in" anymore. Sorry, Mr. Gattuso.
