Political Signs on Public Property
Original post made by Voter on Feb 1, 2008
As I drive around Palo Alto this week, I see dozens of Democratic candidate political signs in the same "public property" and yet they are not subject to confiscation by Palo Alto code enforcement officers.
Why is there a difference?

The Code Enforcement officer will only remove illegally posted signs if they get a lot of complaints. Don't feel bad I've had my Democratic signs removed during past elections. And, you will be happy to know, I walked past many Mitt Romney signs this morning.

Many of the police I know are Republicans, so I highly doubt removal of candidate signs has anything to do with the political party.

Imagine all the greenhouse gases and pollution created by making all of these signs and then chucking them in trash or recycling after the election. Seriously- I'm not saying ban the signs, but just think about it - in every town, in every state, hundreds of thousands of these things created, and it probably doesn't make a huge difference in the election.
