Three signs remain of 100 along coast road for amalgamation
ONLY three signs remain standing of the 100 signs One Capricorn Region put up last week.
The pro-amalgamation group put the signs up along the Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road last Wednesday, but when spokesman Geoff Murphy drove to the Coast on Friday he was horrified to find most had been pulled down.
"It's a very low act," Mr Murphy said.
"I can't believe we live in a country where if you disagree with what someone else says this is what happens.
"I expected the people of Central Queensland to be beyond that.
"If signs go up, whether they're yes or no, so be it."
Capricorn Coast Independence Movement spokesman Bill Ludwig said they certainly didn't condone that behaviour.
"We've had exactly the same problem," Mr Ludwig said.
"We've even had vandals spray paint ours. I don't know if it's supporters or just young people.
"This is a democratic process; everyone should be able to put signs up. Let's just get on with it and give it the vote," Mr Ludwig said.
