Candidate Volosin Again Center of Alleged Campaign Misdeed in Roanoke City Council Race
“We don’t have to do underhanded and dirty stuff to win," candidate Preston Tyler said about the removal of his campaign signs.
Peter Volosin, a Democratic candidate for Roanoke City Council, is again facing allegations of political misbehavior in the competitive race.
Volosin was responsible for the removal last month of campaign signs belonging to Preston Tyler and David Bowers from outside a law office in southwest Roanoke, those independent candidates told The Rambler last week.
In many states, it’s illegal to tamper with political signs, though Virginia’s code is less clear. Tyler said he could take out charges for larceny from the city magistrate’s office, but hadn’t done so as of Tuesday.
