Authorities investigate candidates’ fight over campaign signs in East Dallas
Police are investigating after a dispute arose between two Dallas City Council candidates over campaign signs in East Dallas.
District 7 candidate Yvette Gbalazeh claims her opponent, incumbent Kevin Felder, “trespassed and vandalized private property” with his campaign sign at a car repair shop in Far East Dallas. Gbalazeh told the Dallas Morning News that her friend asked her to take down Felder’s sign and replace it with hers.
The dispute arose when Gbalazeh said Felder tried to steal his campaign sign from her friend’s truck and pushed her when she tried to retrieve it.
Police responded to the disturbance at John West Road and North Buckner Boulevard, but the candidates were no longer there. Both reported the incident to police, according to the Morning News.
