A Political Statement?

Political Statement?You can barely see the man in this cameraphone photo but he figured in an interesting show this morning.

My wife and I were at the light at Beacon Road and Harden Blvd. while we watched that man take two political signs from the ground on from the west side of Harden. He carefully crossed Harden to toss the signs in the drainage basin in front of the bank.

I’m guessing he isn’t a fan of Polk County Commissioner candidate Stan Goudy. At least, that looked like the name on the two blue signs the man threw away.

  1. If the signs were in the right of way, they were illegal. Nevertheless, throwing them into a retention basin is littering, which is also illegal.

  3. Tom, the signs were behind the sidewalk that runs on the west side of the Hardin & Beacon intersection. I wouldn’t say they were in the right-of-way at all.

    And the guy wasn’t concerned with a business sign that was in the right-of-way, so I think it was personal.

  5. On some roads the right of way extends some distance beyond the sidewalk to include utility corridors etc.

    Campaign signs are annoying to me, because even though candidates are supposed to remove them after the campaign, there always seems to be a few that get left behind.

    For you candidates who don’t remove your signs, please use the signs with the wooden stakes and not the wire frames. When I take those signs, I like to save the stakes for future projects. You wouldn’t believe how handy they are!
