Sign of the times...
John Rizzo’s posse begs a warning from The Northeast News. It wasn’t even 48 hours after Rizzo had professed at a public forum his campaign workers did not place signs in the right of way, that they did the very thing.
The Northeast News sighted Mike Gray, brother of Pat Gray – the Rizzo campaign consultant, diligently placing Rizzo’s campaign signs along St. John Avenue and along Gladstone Boulevard in Concourse Park. Having busted Gray for placing signs along Independence Avenue last year,
The Northeast News quickly pulled a u-turn to confront the man. Gray openly admitted he was paid by Rizzo to “go out and plant signs” Later that same afternoon, The Northeast News received a call from Rizzo who called to make some clarifications.
“We’ve reprimanded Mr. Gray and instructed him that if he places any more yard signs in the public right of way, he would be terminated from working on our campaign any further,” Rizzo said.
He also stated Mr. Gray receives a list of addresses of where to place the signs.
“I don’t know what he was thinking,” Rizzo said. “I take this very seriously, yard signs are for yards, not the public right of way.”
