Patterson’s political team has proclaimed they will have all the money they want to buy political signs, last minute robo calls, and political mailers to paint a good picture of their candidate and a sinister one of their opponents. They have scored their first, and what very well could be their last victory, in this race. The “Re-elect Henry Patterson signs are far and away more like what professional political handlers would dictate to a candidate. On the other hand, Bobby Rader, Patterson’s chief opposition, has no political handlers and his signs do not follow the rules the pros tell you work best.
Patterson’s signs “use a multi-color presentation making certain nothing is as large as the candidate’s name”. Rader’s signs include a picture that reduced the size of his print and break several of the known ways to advertise a candidate best. Patterson one, Rader zero.
But these kinds of technical political campaign nuances from the so-called experts may not apply. Henry Patterson’s name appearing large and bright and beautiful may remind voters of the years of absentee “sheriffing” Patterson has put in. it may remind voters of all of the screw-up outside the county personnel he has brought into our community.
