Signs, signs, and more signs!

Posted: September 21, 2012 - 12:47pm

I remember a few years ago after a local election, there was uproar about political signs being left in place long after the election was over and all the ballots were counted. It seems to me if the politicians have the money to spend creating the signs and putting them in place to make sure their name is known, they must have pocket money to hire day labor to take them down. After all, there are many people out of work, out of food, and not much hope for work in the future.

Why can’t the “candidates” pay to have them removed? The signs are an eyesore, will end up being trash all over the place once snow falls, and no longer serve a purpose now that the election is over.

Hire those who need money to take them down and recycle them. If those elected (and those who were not) really care about “the people,” show it and hire those who could use a few extra dollars.

Thank You

On the Kenai Peninsula, there has been an increase in the number of campaign signs and the length of time they stay up, in the last few years. It has become a real mess. People running for office should voluntarily limit their political signs or the citizens will start lobbying their government to put some restrictions in place.

The unwritten rules have been no signs up until at least 8 weeks before the election, no campaign signs out of your district, and remove your signs as soon as possible after the election. Please follow these rules. That means you Cathy Geissel. And Peter Micciche, since apparently no one is running against you in November, you can take your signs down right now.

Since when do we pay attention to SIGNS?

It's the END of the world maybe as i agree with you Allen on why can't we get rid of those political signs when no one is paying any attention to them anyhow and they are meaningless?

Do any of you want me to share my understanding about other SIGNS, as in End of the Age Signs like the Mayans and 89 other ancient societies say will be a bad year in 2012? Probably not, but they are everywhere and no one can seem to read them and they are ALL pointing to the Major troubles we are in as a State & Nation or Globally.
Signs, Signs, Everywhere are Signs.
The Fireweed bloomed out early and i hear that thats a Sign of a bad winter coming. Did you see the Red Sky in the morning the other day? It means for sailors to take warning of bad seas and they were. Then there was the Red Sky at night, which means a sailors delight or calm seas, and they were.
All kinds of traditions and beliefs about Signs for centuries, but now we don't have to pay any attention to Signs which are usually ment as warning to prepare for coming hardships in one way or another in this New Age.

The signs are still up, so i guess the answer is no on removing them even though they are not needed. I think they are leaving them up to cause pain and suffering for all those that voted against them.
