Be Considerate Of Election Signs

To the Editor:

As the campaign for the spring primary election for the district magistrate position heats up, I would like to remind candidates to be conscientious in where they place signs. It is a privilege to place your sign on someone’s property and you should seek the landowner’s permission to do so.

For example, with my grandmother’s permission, I placed a sign for the candidate of our choice in her yard on Clear Ridge Road, Hustontown. When I drove back past her home a short time later, I found a sign for District Judge Horne in my grandmother’s yard, placed there without her permission.

PennDOT has the right to remove signs placed on Penn- DOT’s right-of-way. Landowners have the right to remove any signs placed on their property without their permission.
