Patrick Price may only have one little election sign, but it has gained an audience.

The small 4"x8" sign is made of completely recycle materials, including popsicle sticks and boasts the slogan "Patrick Price is Right for Cochrane." It has made appearances in various locations on his Facebook page and he also used it in his closing remarks at the Oct. 6 forum hosted by the East End community association.

The little sign has fostered requests from people to post it and while Price appreciates the requests he's keeping it close to him. Some candidates have reported stolen or defaced signs and he just doesn't want to take that risk. 

"It's the only one I have and it cost me 30 cents to make," says Price with a wryly grin.

In launching the sign he wrote on his Facebook page, "Thank you all for your kind comments and generous offers of support. I am truly flabbergasted by the reaction. But I am running a green campaign, which means that I have no greenbacks and therefore I am helping the environment by not cutting down trees and making signs or handing out paper propaganda that people will eventually throw out anyways. I am trying to do this the old fashion way, with my mouth. Oh Oh!"

While he may chuckle over the sign, his is a serious campaign that talks about infrastructure, fiscal management, giving the Cochrane Lions a long-term lease for the rodeo grounds, supporting local businesses and giving a sense of belonging to all neighbourhoods, especially those disconnected from the heart of the town by poor transportation corridors and pathways.
