Troy Williams crossing the line?

Troy Williams’ efforts to get publicity for his run for the seat of Fraser know few bounds, he’s even ponied up cash to buy advertising space on this very website. (soon to run out Troy, want a renewal?)

Jon Stanhope is seriously unimpressed with reports that Troy Williams stickers are turning up “on traffic signs all over Gungahlin and north Canberra”.

“The fact that his Liberal Party colleagues are now defacing taxpayers’ property with stickers authorised and printed by Liberal Party President Gary Kent shows that no one in the ACT Liberal Party listens to Mr Stefaniak.

“It’s time Mr Stefaniak showed some leadership and made his Liberal colleagues remove these illegal stickers, and forced Mr Williams to be disendorsed as the Liberal Candidate,” Mr Stanhope said.

I can’t say I’ve noticed them in my travels but if someone wants to send me some co-ordinates I’ll get out there with the camera and add a photo.

Sacking offence?

UPDATED: The damn things really are all over the place once you start looking. Here’s two I noticed once I got out with the camera:

Hmm, looks like he’s not the first into this space with the charming Smack Big Chicks folk already there.

But where there’s room we get more:

What’s Your opinion?

Hey Troy
Is there anyway you can get your campaign volunteers to attack the graffiti out at Ngunnawal while they’re on their travels, seeming Stanhopeless can’t find the $200,000 a year to remove it anymore.
You’ll be able to find it all as soon as you enter Ngunnawal as its starting to look like the Bronx.

Indeed,

As someone noted, Stanhope isn’t jumping up and down at WorkChoices and Free David Hicks stickers everywhere.

Troy – seems your taking responsibility has worked well. I don’t live in your electorate, but best of luck.

I laugh whenever I see the union stickers and posters around the place, because it reminds me of just how outdated and irrelevant to modern Australia the union movement really is. I used to be a union delegate once, which is how I learnt to hate them.

Cool:

You mean if I print up a couple of hundred stickers saying that Stanhope is great and should be elected, and plaster them around the city (well worth the $ for a box of laser printer labels) – I can get somebody sacked.

Vell – Comrades – Very Vell done indeed – ve Shall Be Takung Controll of dis Kuntry soon.

G’day all

Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Easter break.

Organising some of our campaign volunteers to take the stickers down won’t be a problem as not having put the stickers up myself, nor having asked that they appear, it is a straight-forward request. Simply, it’s the right thing to do.

All the best

Troy

Stanhope, that bastion of preserving the integrity of public buildings, signs, etc.

Bruford did you say?

How about a comment from Troy?
-We know you read this site, stand up and be counted.

IMO there’s a difference between defacing a traffic sign and attaching a poster or placard to a sign post below the sign.

Don’t know about the rest of you, but with advertising of this standard he deserves my vote.

Keep it up Troy, who knows maybe these stickers is what is needed to get that 9.4% swing. Thats only an extra 20,000 odd votes. You go for it.
