Azinger signs are misleading

It is hard enough for voters to keep the candidates straight in a primary election without obstacles being placed in their path. One such obstacle is the “Azinger – House of Delegates” language on campaign signs sprouting up around the county. Voters would be forgiven for assuming the candidate is longtime Delegate Tom Azinger. In fact, Tom Azinger has chosen not to run and the candidate is political newcomer to Wood County, Michael Azinger, his son.

Wood Countians might be familiar with Michael’s name as he has run for office across the river in Ohio.

It would be helpful if the media and the Michael Azinger campaign would clarify who the candidate actually is before the primary election.
