Vandals Target Campaign Office
Prince George, B.C. – Staff working at Prince George-Valemount NDP candidate Natalie Fletcher’s office found a nasty surprise when they arrived to work this morning.
A rock had been thrown threw their campaign office window at Massey Drive and Ospika Boulevard sometime between the time staff left at 6:30 last night and prior to when they arrived for work at 8:30 this morning.
“The police said there was a bit of vandalism in the neighbourhood and they were questioning whether it was politically motivated or not and we said we didn’t believe it was,” says Ron Williams, Fletcher’s campaign manager.
“It’s a bit of a hit to the campaign this close to the end,” added Fletcher. “I mean, I’m wanting to spend the money I’ve raised out engaging with voters, but it’s good nobody was hurt and nobody was here.”
It’s not the first act of vandalism to strike Prince George since the writ was dropped April 11. Campaign signs have also been vandalized.
For example, last week candidate signs on 15th Avenue and Foothills Boulevard were hit. Some damaged beyond repair.
