Many political signs were damaged, defaced or stolen again over the past few nights in Bridgewater. Signs supported both Democratic and Republican candidates running for national and state offices. First Selectman Curtis Read says these incidents are a violation of 1st Amendment rights, punishable by law and called them disappointing for all citizens. Bridgewater’s Republican and Democratic Town Committees have offered a reward of $1,000 leading to an arrest of people responsible. Read says some residents have installed security measures at the advice of local police officers. Any incidents should be reported to the Bridgewater Police or the First Selectman’s office.
