Editor, The Beacon: 

This morning, I discovered that the third Biden/Harris sign in front of my Lake Helen house had been stolen. 

I called the sheriff’s dispatch to file a report, so a Lake Helen cop came by, and I gave him the details. 

The first sign theft I thought might be some stupid bored kid on a bike, but three Biden/Harris signs stolen in two weeks, while two Lake Helen City Commission candidate signs go untouched, means this is politically motivated. 

So I’ve decided to keep putting up Biden/Harris signs and will donate money to the Democratic Party Campaign every time one disappears. 

As a 41-year resident of Lake Helen, I am deeply disappointed at the lack of respect for freedom of speech shown by these thefts. 

I hope it does not become the “new normal.”
