Letter: Signs, signs, everywhere signs

Why would any credible candidate would post two of their signs beside each other?

OK it’s election time, and I understand that candidates are going to post signs — all over the bloody place.

I get that. What I don’t understand is why any credible candidate would post two of their signs beside each other. It truly does not portray you in a positive light. It makes you look kind of desperate.

Does anyone truly believe that we, the constituents, are so stupid that we will vote for someone if we see their sign more often? I hope we are better than that.

I propose we limit political signs, for our general sanity, to one per candidate per 100 feet. or whatever.

There has been a lot of controversy and social activism since the last election. I would gently encourage people get out and vote. Please compare candidates and select the ones that are most in line with your thinking.

That’s democracy.
