Sign of the times? Moving on after repeated theft

By Diane Ako - bio | email

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- One Honolulu mayoral candidate whose signs have been stolen says she's moving on this week with new signs and a new attitude. Councilwoman Ann Kobayashi says over the past couple weeks, thieves removed hundreds of signs from private property of her supporters, in homes from Waipahu to Waimanalo.

Kobayashi has been involved in politics since 1980 and says this has never happened to her. "It's the first time I've been involved in one where signs are stolen. And so many! Over 400, plus banners! But it just makes our volunteers stronger and they want to keep working harder."

Mayor Mufi Hannemann's campaign has said at least 100 of its signs and banners have been defaced or stolen in the last three weeks on Oahu, too.
