County commissioner victim of vandalism
A billboard supporting Georgia Hiller, a candidate for District 2 Collier County commissioner, has been vandalized twice in the past week.
The sign, located on the corner of Airport-Pulling Road and Orange Blossom Drive, was changed to read “Georgia Hitler.”
“To be able to send such a hateful message with three strokes of a pen takes a great deal of contemplation,” Hiller told the Naples Daily News.
The sign has since been cleaned, but other candidates are worried that this might be a reflection of the community.
“If Naples residents are capable of doing this, then we all might be worse off than I thought,” said District 4 candidate Lavigne Ann Kirkpatrick. “Naples needs effective and empowering leadership guide us back into a welcoming community.”
