Weed out the campaign signs

By From page A10 | March 01, 2013

Do the backers of Measure I think that the election will be decided by the number of campaign signs that are plastered all around town? Both sides are playing juvenile games by putting their signs everywhere. The majority of their signs are on public property, which is not permitted by the election code. What is the purpose of putting a “no” sign in front of a “yes” sign and knocking over a “no” sign? The city clerk’s office sent out and email to both camps last week and yet the signs were not removed!

Driving down Covell Boulevard, there are signs everywhere, on public property alongside of the street, including the median. With the wind, some of those signs were blown into the traffic lanes. In the future, maybe those putting up the signs can act like adults and realize they do not have to put signs every five feet.

Since they do not know how to determine what is an OK placement maybe they can simply realize that if you cannot knock on a door and ask permission, maybe the sign should be placed there. Is there any hope?
