Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. It’s that season again. Lawn signs supporting candidates are popping up all over. Do you know that most candidates spend hours at the doors and on the phones cultivating a list of supporters who are willing to host signs because they believe that candidate is the best choice for the office?
There are city ordinances for proper sign placement. You must have permission from the private property owner. And you cannot put signs on city property or open lots without permission. Call the city at 952-949-8300 if you have questions. Spending lots of money on signs and campaign mailings does not mean that a candidate is the right choice and when someone puts up lots of signs, that does not mean they will be a good school board member.
Be sure to check out each candidate before you vote! The good news is signs don’t vote; people do.
