F07, Calderone dominating the sign war [FP]

Yesterday I was out counting signs in Forest Park. At one point I had 85 houses (not businesses) with Anthony Calderone signs, twelve for Theresa Steinbach and four for Patrick Doolin.

Please remind your Forest Park family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to vote on Tuesday.

  • Chris Welch dominated the sign war to. Lot's of good that did him. Desperate candidates always try to create the impression of support by putting up lot's of signs. Successful candidates actually run campaigns where they engage voters and don't worry to much about signs.

  • Nobody in their right mind is going to vote for Calderone. I don't care how many signs you may see. He is not loved by all, just a select few.

  • I noticed an increase in the Doolin & Steinbach count after the Review dumped the Mayor. I also saw a lot of unshoveled steps on homes with Calderone signs this past week.

    Interesting thought: The willingness to take peoples home and the huge number of Calderone signs on Madison St. It begs the question, do they know something that we don't? The Mayor did introduce his downtown parking plan to the Chamber of Commerce before he gave any details to the public.

    Anyway, E. "Chris" Welch proved signs do not equal votes.

  • With seven of twelve precincts counted the totals are: Calderone, 165; Steinbach, 32; and Doolin, 21.

  • This is a primary. Don't you think the fact that Calderone is putting so many signs out (including on property that is currently vacant) is a sign that he is worried? I actually take his signage as an indication that he doesn't consider the primary a "done deal".
