Campaign Signs Up
I see a few campaign signs popping up around town. Some of them, of course, never came down after the primary- The Neely vs. Flemming race still undecided.
The only signs I've noticed, so far, are Neely, Flemming, Jeff Leonard and, oh, a couple for Mary Beth- Wolford. I can't believe those will be the only ones putting out signs. I remember back during the primary we discussed the issue of when signs should go up- not too early, not too late- but don't remember if a consensus was ever reached.
I figure a month and a half before the election is soon enough. Even a month is fine. The day after the election, the signs come down. Sometimes, as I did last time around, I take them down as soon as the polls close on election day.
I was asked by someone a few days ago if they could put a sign in my yard. I figured it was too early, although it's probably within the month and a half election window. I think I'll go ahead and put some signs up around September 1.
Wouldn't it be interesting if few other signs ended up being put up and the candidates and issues with the least signs won?
