Political Signs

I guess I'm a goody-two-shoes, but we should all obey the law, especially when seeking public office.

I am putting up a few campaign signs and will do so following the Town's law regarding political signs.

All candidates received a copy of the ordinance containing this law when we took out nomination papers.  The law says signs should not exceed 4 square feet, should be on private property and not be more than 8 feet off the ground.  Reading this law I designed my signs to be installed on fences rather than free standing in the street right of way.

Here's the law:


I appreciate the enthusiasm exhibited by the profusion of signs in the public right of way but the Town has a long tradition of discouraging signs.  If we want these signs we should change the law first.
