Campaign SignsBy Deborah Hayden
September 12, 2018
In this campaign season so far the various factions have been not been contentious. That changed this weekend when I came home and found a “Vote No on 1” sign placed on my property without my permission. Whether I will vote no on ballot measure 1 or not has no bearing on the sign on my property. The fact is, no one asked or received permission to place the sign on my property. I removed the sign and placed it on the ground nearby. The next day, the sign was again up on my property. No one had asked for permission. I again removed the sign and put it in a place where those who kept putting it up could not access it.
Over the weekend, I noted that three other signs that I had personally placed on my property had been removed. The only entity that has an interest in removing signs is the Alaska Department of Transportation, (DOT). DOT personnel do not work on weekends. I doubt DOT removed the three signs. I can only surmise that the “Vote No on 1” people removed the other three signs on my property out of pique that I had removed their sign.
This kind of small-mindedness does nothing to promote their cause and only creates extreme irritation on the part of people on whose property they presume to place signs without permission.
