Question of the Day: Political Signs

Are there too many political signs posted around the neighborhood?

Only one week until Election Day! While Patch is keeping you covered on the latest election news, there's another phenomenon going on just outside your door:

Political signs.

They give residents a chance to show their support for individual candidates, or political party, and allow the public to see the array of people running for office. Who knows, maybe the name you see on a lawn sign on the way to the polls will stick!

However, some have mentioned their disdain for the signs in recent weeks, claiming there are too many, and that a "smattering" would be more beneficial than an "onslaught."

We're asking you, the experts on the community, are there too many political signs? Not enough? Do you believe they serve a purpose? Have one or two currently on your lawn? Let us know in the comments.

The sign cleanup has already begun. Suozzi supporters are taking the Delia Deriggi Whitton signs off of their lawns because of the mailing she sent out blasting his budget and tax increase.

So that's why my neighbors removed her signs off their front lawn. I guess throwing Mayor Suozzi and the other members of the city council under the bus has its consequences.

I'll put a Galt/Taggart sign on my lawn, that should be suitably offensive to the majority.

Hey Bob, those signs don't irritate me as much as the names on them. For instance, this Delia babe. What has she ever done for GC that qualifies her to represent us on the county level. I don't know this Germino cat but at least he had the guts to join the Marines and go to Iraq. In my book, that's something. What has this little girl Delia done for us, I want to know.

Delia Deriggi Whitton signs are being ripped down all thru Glen Cove. Looks like the Suozzi team gave the order. She burned them all with her ad and mailings blasting their budget. Ouch!
