Dawson MP’s signs defaced – again
DAWSON MP George Christensen’s election campaign was attacked once again this week.
With a number of signs on Shute Harbour Rd between Mt Julian and Cannonvale targeted on Saturday, May 28, the replacement signs were again defaced over the weekend.
A knife was again used to cut Mr Christensen’s face from a number of the signs, while the remainder again had a strip cut from their middle.
In response to the attack, Mr Christensen said he had “plenty of signs”.
“It’s very petty and very pointless,” he said.
“They’ve obviously got a bee in their bonnet, this person, but they should take it out at the polling both rather than the signs.”
Mr Christensen said the vandals must have “a very small mind to go and do something like that”.
“A person who can’t articulate their values in a sensible way so they feel the need to go out and commit an act of vandalism,” he said.
“I’ll just keep on campaigning.”
The MP said he had decided not to report the first attack to police.
“It was only a small amount of money, but I’ll be assessing how much damage has been done this time and whether it’s referred to police,” he said.
“But whether we do or we don’t, it’s still criminal activity.”
FACE OFF: Dawson MP George Christensen hit back at the vandals, saying he had “fixed it, but I’m not sure I can sustain this position for the rest of the campaign”.
