As candidates(R), they're making their first cuts - to their signs
MOORESTOWN - Talk about cutting corners to save a campaign.

When it was learned early this month that lawn signs supporting Republican Township Council candidates Lois Downey, Harvey Howard and Larry Anastasi violated a zoning ordinance because they were less than a square inch too big, quick action was needed. And taken.

Armed with scissors and sharp political acumen, Howard and a half-dozen of the candidates' supporters fanned out and cut corners from the cardboard signs - all 250 or so of them. By midnight, about six hours later, their mission was accomplished, and the blue-and-white signs were legal.

"When we ordered the signs, the manufacturer didn't realize it was a spec job," Howard said with a chuckle. "We just measured up on each corner three inches and cut on a diagonal. The hard part was tracking them all down."
