Size doesn't matter

I can't help but notice that the local candidate with the largest and most annoying campaign signs -- Vincent Bradley Jr. -- came in dead last in Tuesday's three-way race for Ulster County district attorney.

Voter backlash? Maybe, maybe not. But future candidates should remember that beating the populace over the head has its pitfalls.

Who knows why people vote one way or another? But I have to say that last week I saw a letter to the editor in the Freeman denouncing big campaign signs, without naming any names, and from that moment every time I went past a Bradley sign it annoyed me more than the last time. Needless to say I was against Bradley already, but seeing the gigantisigns drove the nail deeper.
