Fayetteville City Council Campaign Billboard Targeted by Vandals

Oct 14, 2020

Within hours of the sign going up in early October, vandals scrawled hate speech using black spray paint on a campaign billboard to elect Kyle Smith to Fayetteville City Council. Smith was appointed to City Council three years ago but is also a noted LGBTQ civil rights advocate. No data yet exists, but this election cycle sign vandalism appears to be statewide occurrence.
