Police say man crashed into political signs
MANCHESTER - A city man was given a summons for reckless operation Saturday after he drove a truck over a curb and upended four signs for Democratic candidates on a North End lawn.
Police said Douglas Duverger, 56, of 23 Byledge Road, ran over campaigns signs in the yard of 1214 Union St., around 1:15 p.m., police said.
Police Lt. Michael Hurley said the police report didn't indicate whether the incident was politically motivated.
Duverger told the New Hampshire Sunday News he didn't run over any signs.
The homeowners, John and Brenda Wade, were out doing yard work when the incident allegedly occurred, according to Mr. Wade.
The retired city firefighter said the truck hopped a curb and "signs went flying," he said.
Mrs. Wade phoned police with the truck's description and license plate number.
Wade said he believes it was politically motivated. The four signs advocated for congressional candidate Carol Shea-Porter, Executive Council candidate Chris Pappas and for two state reps, Dan Sullivan and Jeff Goley.
Asked about the political implications, Mr. Wade said: "We're really divided, aren't we?"
Police said there was no damage to the yard or the signs. The Wades, who have had signs stolen during previous elections, replanted the signs in the ground.
