ELECTION: Expensive graffiti litters our roadsides

I don’t think I’m the only one who dislikes the cluttering of our area with political signs. I understand the need for name recognition, but I find it annoying and confusing when they litter the landscape.

On that note, I would like to thank Malcolm Russell for removing the political sign from my property, which backs on to 67th Avenue West in University Place. It was possibly installed by a zealous volunteer who may not have known to get permission before posting the sign on private property.

Russell’s prompt response to my request via phone message to an answering machine is greatly appreciated. I wonder how many other politicians would act so quickly. The main streets in our area are covered with this expensive graffiti. I wish it would end.
