With the ballot question debate over the proposed override and purchase of 494 Washington St., heating up in Wellesley for the May 20 voting day, it’s no surprise that things are getting down and dirty. Yes, we’re talking sign swapping (not necessarily at the yards shown here).
One reader wrote on Thursday: “This morning, the peaceful people of Atwood Street awoke as victims of a yes-to-no sign switcher. The perpetrator broke the hearts of multiple Atwood toddlers, who saw their beloved blue signs replaced by red ones. Shame on you, sign switcher! Good thing the victims still have their bumper stickers and right to vote.”
Meanwhile, over at the Wellesley Taxpayers Association Facebook page, one resident scolded somebody for switching a sign at his house from Yes to No. The Association assured the offended party that it had nothing to do with the switcheroo.
