WOONSOCKET — A spokesman for Republican congressional challenger Brendan Doherty said Wednesday he will remove a campaign sign from private property on South Main Street after a complaint about the size of the advertising was filed at the city’s zoning office.
“We don’t want to ruffle any feathers,” said Robert Coupe, spokesman for the campaign. “If there’s a complaint, we’ll remove it.”
Jeff Burlingame, a city firefighter, told The Call he filed the complaint because the sign is larger than the zoning code allows for political advertising.
