Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

Now that the primary is over, and we are still three months away from the general election, I would like to bring up an issue that I have noticed within the Kent city limits: political signage.

These signs, primarily consisting of people who did not win in the primary election, continue to “litter” the road side. As I understand it, there is supposed to be a limit on when signs must come down after an election, but I rarely see that enforced.

In this case, it appears only one campaign has made the effort to pull up their smaller signage. Volunteers from the Jim Berrios mayoral campaign were out the day of the primary to collect his signs. I appreciate this consideration when it comes to not cluttering up our road sides, and I would encourage the other candidates to follow this lead – particularly those who will not be moving on in the general election.

To me, leaving the campaign signs up on the side of the road to die until the next election shows a lack of respect for the city and its voters.
