My wife and I moved here last December after retiring from many years of teaching public school. We love the natural beauty of the island, and we have met many wonderful people. It is almost as though there is an Orcas state of mind and behavior. That’s why we were so surprised to see that campaign signs we had placed in a couple of places disappeared recently.
Several days ago, the Republican signs disappeared. Now the Democratic signs are gone. Yes, we live in very polarizing times, but we should be able to act civilly toward each other. Removing these campaign signs is not only an act of vandalism but worse, very un-Orcas-like. It takes effort to get over to San Juan Island to get signs and bring them back. We would request that the signs be returned to the places from which they were removed.
