District 4 Board of Supervisors. Chapter 7: We Found the “Confiscated” NOT “Stolen” Collins Campaign Postersby Robert Harris on Aug. 22, 2012, under Pima County, politics, Rosemont copper
There are too many stories that do not have an ending, something that you can put your teeth into and say, “Yes that’s the end of the story.” This time the ending is the signs were picked up by the highway maintenance from Nogales.
Excerpt from story August 5, 2012.
Collins sent out an email Friday with the subject line, “Smile, you’re on the Collins Camera” to help capture the sign-snatcher. The campaign posted the video, taken by a hidden camera set up by a campaign volunteer and authorized by the Collins campaign, on YouTube and asked for people with information to call the Pima County Sheriff’s Department. Collins, a small-business owner trying to unseat Ray Carroll in Pima County Board of Supervisors District 4, is not taking this lightly. He has promised a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprit. He’s promising to prosecute the person to the “fullest extent the law allows.”
Included with this story is a link to the YOUTUBE Video of Sean Collins’ campaign posters at mile marker 47.5 on Highway 83, which just happens to be the entrance to the Rosemont property and also includes photographs from Nogales . The Video shows the pictures of the confiscated signs at the DOT yard in Nogales. Just click on the picture and it will open a new link.
The incident was used by Mr Collins in a negative campaign against supervisor Ray Carroll and the Save the Scenic Santa Ritas . I think it would be gentlemanly if he were to call both organizations and apologize for his comments. Oh yes, Mr Collins perhaps could tell how someone could collect their $500 reward for finding his campaigns signs.
