Signs of trouble?

Holmes Beach commission candidate Marvin Grossman over the weekend reported to the Islander that he found damaged campaign signs and about 12 signs that had been removed from locations that were pre-approved by property owners.

And Holmes Beach commission candidate Judy Holmes Titsworth was alerted of an anonymous complaint about her housing wildlife — in this instance, chickens that were found running loose and rescued from near the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

Titsworth holds a wildlife rescue permit, similar to that of Wildlife Inc. and its operators, Gail and Ed Straight have for their Bradenton Beach home.

She noted her twin, Jeannie Bystrom, also of Holmes Beach, also holds a wildlife rescue permit.

Grossman said he would likely file a police report on his sign vandalism in order for HBPD to keep a lookout for further instances.

The pair of candidates are running for seats on the Holmes Beach city commission presently held by Sandy Haas-Martens and John Monetti, whose terms are expiring.

The election includes candidates for the mayor’s seat as well and will be held Nov. 6.
