Outraged and disgusted by sign

Letter to the Editor

As a concerned mother of two living in Nashua, I am disgusted and outraged by The Mortgage Specialists posting such vulgar language on their electronic billboard. It looks like the owner is using this profanity in support of Kevin Avard, who is running for state Senate. Mr. Avard appears to be cooperative in this, as his face has been appearing on the sign for some time. The offensive word in this current display would not be allowed to be printed in this newspaper and my son would be sent to detention if he said it at school. The same word appeared on this very sign back in April. I don’t know if Mr. Avard and the owner of this sign have children of their own, but this irresponsible use of profanity makes me question the value they place on parents and their children. It also makes me seriously question the judgment of a candidate for public office who would allow his name and image to be used in such a manner.
