Griffin looks for a sign

ROCKHAMPTON Regional Council mayor candidate Tim Griffin fears he could be the victim of foul play after a number of his promotional signs went missing.

Mr Griffin yesterday said about 10% of the signs he put up during the past week had disappeared.

Most have gone from the Rockhampton and Gracemere areas.

Mr Griffin said he suspected there were some people who didn't want the Griffin New Thinking message getting out there.

"I'm disappointed," Mr Griffin said.

"There is a principle here.

"You should respect your opponent."

He said he'd followed the proper regulations for putting up the signs.

Having waited for the state election to wind up, he's busily put signs up across the region.

"Within 24 to 48 hours some of these signs have gone missing," Mr Griffin said.

"Each sign costs about $40."

He said he had about 100 signs made.

"It does take expenses to (run for mayor). It's all right if you have the big end of town bankrolling you, but we're running a grassroots campaign here," Mr Griffin said.

"It will not deter me. I will still be out there talking to people.

"I will bring in some new thinking."
