From Tom Myers:
People who took the buses to the Harford County Farm Fair noticed campaign signs for Senator Barry Glassman, who is running for County Executive, and Jeff Gahler, who is running for Sheriff, displayed on those buses. Farm Fair rules prohibit the display of political signs other than in political booths. Glassman and Gahler, being past campaigners at the Farm Fair, know these rules but chose to have their signs displayed on the buses anyway.
Neither Mr. Glassman nor Mr. Gahler hold the offices they are currently seeking. In fact, Mr. Glassman still has to campaign when he faces Joseph Werner this November, and Mr. Gahler is making his second challenge to incumbent Sheriff Jesse Bane.
It is amazing that those who are asking voters to entrust them with the duties and responsibilities of public office are willing to break the rules. They have no consideration for the fact that bus riders might not know they are in fact running for these offices. Are they implying that they have already won? It is disappointing that Glassman, a veteran of past Farm Fairs and a 24-year public servant, and Gahler, a law enforcement officer and a sheriff hopeful, would choose to violate Farm Fair’s guidelines regarding campaigning during the event. It says something about whether Mr. Glassman should be elected to lead the County or Mr. Gahler should be elected to lead the Sheriff’s office when they aren’t even willing to follow the Farm Fair’s rules.
