It’s all fixed now

The billboard belonging to an election candidate that was vandalised a few days ago has now been fixed.

And the candidate for the Urban West Constituency, Faumuina Asi Wayne Fong, is a grateful man.

“It's fixed and it’s smiling again,” he wrote on his Facebook page yesterday.

Faumuina thanked Niko Caffarelli and the Design Studio crew for their generosity in repairing the sign.

“Oh and it's free of charge,” Faumuina said. 

“I have decided to withdraw my complaint with the police, forgive the brother who did it and move forward from here. 

“Urban West has more pressing issues and developments that needs taking care of A.S.A.P. Please vote, vote and vote some more. I'm a very determined and spot on candidate to make things happen and a good listener as well.”

On Tuesday, Faumuina had offered a reward of $1,000 for information on who vandalised his campaign billboard at Sinamoga. He had also offered an additional $1,000 once the person is identified and prosecuted. 

Faumuina has two billboards. For each one of them, it had cost him $4,000 to install. 

The candidate suspected that youths are responsible for the damage although he believes it was deliberate.
