City Council Candidate campaign signs vandalized

by LYNNWOOD TIMES STAFF

At the corner of 60th Ave. W. and 204th St. S.W.,  two of Diodato (Dio) Boucsieguez’s campaign signs were vandalized.  On the morning of July 13, Boucsieguez discovered one sign was stolen and the other was stripped from its stake and pinned to a nearby utilities pole.  Boucsieguez is one of four other candidates running for Lynnwood City Council Position 4.  According to Boucsieguez, he placed both signs a couple days earlier at the location.

According the RCW 29A.84.040, “A person who removes or defaces lawfully placed political advertising including yard signs or billboards without authorization is guilty of a misdemeanor… defacement or removal of each item constitutes a separate violation.”  A misdemeanor has a maximum penalty of ninety days in county jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.
