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.

    i have also been a target of this kind of vandalism. On Maple Rd and 40th Ave W, I found 2 yard signs pulled out from the ground. Two of my signs were stolen from a private home on Maple Rd and Spruce Way, I replaced them and one was stolen again. One sign was stolen from 208th St SW and 61st Ave W, 1 yard sign was stolen from 200 St SW & 64th Ave W. In total, 19 signs were damaged or stolen.
