Illegal political signs were found at Indian Rock Park near Perry Hall High School. Those signs belong to Democratic 5th District Council County nominee Alex Foley.
The irony is that Indian Rock Park is the same location where his opponent Republican Councilman David Marks held a community clean up two weeks earlier. Marks pointed out that all his signs are on private property with permission of the property owner and that Foley’s signs are being placed illegally.
“My opponent must not care about public parks,” Marks said. “Two weeks ago, I organized about a dozen volunteers who ventured into swampy grass to clean up Indian Rock Park. Today, my opponent has littered that same park will illegal signs.”
Foley has run a bare bones campaign. He has rejected all invitations to debate Marks in candidate forums. The highlight of his campaign was making a video driving around in a car and he sign waved for Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous on Monday. Foley signs have also been spotted outside of the 5th District.
“I understand that my opponent has skipped community forums and may not know Perry Hall very well, but I had hoped he might respect a clearly-identified public park. When will he be cleaning it up?” Marks asked.
