Taking out the trash in Los Alamitos?

Kevin Ferguson here, with some political scofflaws of the hyper-local variety. This upcoming election has proven to be pretty hotly contested in Los Alamitos, the Long Beach-adjacent OC suburb. It's pitted a group of motivated upstarts against another coalition of incumbents and former city council members (including Dean Grose, the ex-mayor who's sense of humor was deservedly brought under scrutiny last year).

On the establishment side, apparently, is local businessman George Briggeman (he used to own a waste disposal company, one of the largest businesses in Los Al). As discovered by local muckraker Dave Emerson at Let's Fix Los Al, here's a video of a man believed to be Briggeman disposing of something he apparently considers garbage: a campaign sign belonging to that same trio of upstarts.
