Re­mov­ing posters

Bray People - - COUNCIL REPORT -

THE COVERT re­moval of elec­tion posters was con­demned at last week’s meet­ing of Wick­low County Coun­cil. Cllr. John Byrne said, ‘It has come to my at­ten­tion that mem­bers of some po­lit­i­cal par­ties were re­mov­ing posters and that should be con­demned. It is con­trary to proper democ­racy. We are here giv­ing out about the re­turn­ing of­fi­cer but how we be­haved also needs to be looked at.’

Cllr. Tom For­tune said he was aware of peo­ple who had re­moved his posters in the run up to the elec­tion but ‘I can’t prove it’.
