Much has been made of the recent political campaign sign chaos. Combined with the usual We Buy Homes, I Fix Brakes and we are having a Yard Sale , this was the perfect storm (will this expression never end?) of signage carnage. Not to mention the raging inferno of the court battles lending us these instant classic headlines: 10 Signs 10 Trips to Court, City Zoning Inspector's Car Windows Smashed . The horror.
Before the next swathing of fences and roadside attractions with the next round of sign carnage, please bear with me as I add my say...I am now the proud owner of several HUGE-assed signs by three of the classic offenders, Martin Heinrich, Bob Schwartz, and Michael Padilla. They are well constructed (and did I mention HUGE?). I will put them to good use.
These three good men (or their troops) posted their signage(s) directly onto our private property without bothering to make a simple phone call to our business or send an email or what have you. As a business owner, I am happy to support the election process and will happily display signage(s) for persons or parties I believe in (and they will be seen by thousands daily at our front-and-center business location). We went so far as to host a rally for a certain presidential candidate early on that was attended by our neighboring state's Governor.
I have nothing against Messieurs: Heinrick, Padilla, or Schwartz, but a lot of the CARNAGE of SIGNAGE could be avoided with candidates/crews taking the time to ask permission of business owners, land owners, renters before the willy-nilly placing of expensively HUGE signs or even the few billion teensy weensy signs all over the place.
By the way, WHO is that guy who can FIX BRAKES?
