Lawn sign drama. Ward 22 Alderman Greg Morehead was caught by police with his opponents’ campaign signs in his truck, the New Haven Independent reported. He said he only removed signs that his constituents asked him to remove or that were illegally placed on public property.

Aldermanic candidate Douglas Bethea accused opponent Frank Douglass’s campaign of taking down his signs in the middle of the night, while admitting to obstructing Douglass’ signs with his own.
