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.

  1. Every year we can count on the whinos complaining about two things that aren’t likely to change: political signs and the Blue Angels.

    I agree.The signs are actually being taken down and used as signs for yard sales.Any signs put up in our neighborhood has a picture and any signs on state..county..city..or trees is logged and reported.We have the sign police taking down the signs daily.Our neighborhood alone has removed 125 illegal signs in 3 months.Now neighborhoods next to ours are also doing the same thing.We are tired of the clutter and the ghetto look of signs in our community.

    This will only have a positive effect because where there is no clutter the tagging of home owners fences seems to move into a move desirable area.

  3. Ah for the good old days – when campaigning began on Labor Day.

    I agree xring.I get tired of picking up signs left over from the elections
