The Primary election campaign season is quickly drawing to a close. It is a good time to remind all candidates and residents that no one has a right to place a sign in your front yard unless you have told them it is OK to do so.
For the past couple of weeks I have received a few complaints about signs being stolen, signs not wanted and signs being placed without permission. If this is the case, the person placing the sign is trespassing.
Some folks are not happy with the size of the signs and some are not happy with the number of signs.
Please remember, if you have granted permission to have a sign placed on your property, you are, in essence, giving your support to that candidate, so please know the candidate you are granting this privilege and know what they stand for.
It is not necessary to say yes to every candidate who may ask.
I am writing this letter to let every resident know that while I encourage you to support your favorite candidate, you are well within your right to remove any signs placed without your permission. You may dispose of it or call the candidate and ask them to come and remove the sign.
