Halloween is a month long retail opportunity in the US, and for some a political opportunity too. Joe Moskowitz from Arkville is running for supervisor in the Town of Middletown. His black and white JOE signs have been popular - Joe has had to file several complaints with the state police regarding the theft of a dozen signs from supporter’s lawns in recent weeks. The investigation is continuing.
