It is time for a reminder of where you can place political signs in the triad area. Above you will see the regulations for the City of Greensboro and if you would like to see Guilford County, Jamestown and High Point CLICKHERE .
Greensboro City Council member Nancy Vaughan has some pictures of campaign signs that are in areas that are illegal here are a few of the pictures. As you will see these pictures were taken on plenty of places up and down battleground avenue with the last picture taken at the intersection of battleground and pisgah church road where there is a huge median that is owned by the City of Greensboro and the whole median is illegal to post signs on. It is time to take them down .
Greensboro City Council member Nancy Vaughan had this to say on Facebook,
" I am stunned by the number of illegal election signs! It is illegal to place signs in traffic medians or traffic islands. All Don Vaughan, NC Senate signs are placed with the landowners permission. If you see one of Don's signs in an illegal location you have our permission to take it down. I challenge other candid...ates to say the same!! If you can't follow the law how can we trust you to make the law?
These were taken on a small section of Battleground Avenue this morning. I can only imagine what the rest of the district looks like. I challenge people to hold "their" people ("their" team) accountable. When Don sees that one of his signs ...has been put up illegally he takes it down (and the only way that can occur is if it is one of the many that we've had to replace that have been "stolen" from private property and put up somewhere else). Candidates need to train their volunteers to do the right thing. To me, it is a question of integrity and it's the law."
There are a lot of people who just don't care about these rules and regulations . This issue has been going on for a long time with little enforcement but i think there needs to be a NEW RULE . The new rule would be that every sign will have a section of it where the owner of the property will put his address on the sign along with his signature on each sign in the owners property. If there isn't a signature along with the exact address for the sign then the sign is illegal and needs to go. Read the sign regulations and have a great campaign.
