While he was thinking of packing it in earlier this week after his family car was keyed, Trent Laarz says he’s in it for the long haul. Despite this – he says election sign damage continues on the campaign trail.
“We had a run of five or six right at the hospital destroyed,” he says Saturday afternoon, working his way through south Dawson Creek up 15th Street. While he notes signs are expensive, he knew what he was signing up for when running for the city’s highest office.
“They are welcome take these ones,” he jokes.
Laarz says next week will see more public appearances, including at next week’s council candidate debate at the Encana Events Centre.
“Most of the candidates were at Dale and my conversation, I’d like to return the favour, see the new facility and meet with more voters.”
