Putting His Heart (And Sole) Into Politics
Chuck Taylor, running for mayor in Circleville, about 30 miles south of Columbus, thinks he knows why more than 20 of his yard signs have been swiped. The candidate thinks the culprits are fans of a basketball shoe, not allies of his opponents. Chuck Taylor also is the name of the classic Converse high-top sneakers with the "All Star" logo on the sides. Taylor says he had no idea the shoes were so popular. He says parents have asked if they can buy one of his "Elect Chuck Taylor Mayor" signs for their kid's bedroom.
