Resident doesn’t want political door hangers

A Coeur d'Alene resident was miffed to return home and find campaign literature hanging from the front door, which is clearly marked to warn solicitors and political operatives from approaching. The resident found this flier from the campaign of state Rep. Kathy Sims. And wrote to Huckleberries Online to complain. The resident wrote: "What does it say about our representatives when they cannot provide a minimum of respect for our needs and wishes?" And also: "My door is clearly marked." And: "I really don't and cannot support candidates that refuse to respect the rights of their constituents." And: "To me the message is clear ... Your opinions and concerns do not matter."
