CommunityConcerns™: Campaign Signs Stolen/Damaged
Isn’t removing political signs illegal?
Isn’t removing them from private property the crime which includes trespassing?
Beyond that, everyone knows that it is the act of desperation by campaigns that cannot withstand the pressure of fair competition and/or qualification.
Many political signs belonging to Alton Skinner and Bill Stalnaker, both candidates for Magistrate office, have been damaged and stolen.
Several have been found in the river which is also an act of littering.
Removing campaign signs is a waste of money and energy.
The perpetrators should be sough, caught, and prosecuted.
The signs pictured here as well as half, if not more of all the campaign signs are located on State Property, (Right-of-way) which is an illegal act in itself. Every sign placed illegally SHOULD be destroyed. Another example of “breaking the law” that seems so rampant among our “wannabe” upstanding and respected candidates.
Perhaps the state should go through and remove this “litter” from our highways on a regular basis and help educate those who wish to serve us.

I just looked and Bill’s sign is missing off my yard. It was up on my bank and there are 2 signs from other candidates just on the bend that are clearly on state property and they are still there.
Guess the higher powers are afraid Bill Stalnaker might become the next magistrate and they know he can not be bought!! Not now.. not ever!
Vote for Bill Stalnaker and Carole Wolf, help get Gilmer County back on track.

Campaign signs should be at least 20’ from the centerline of the road with the exception of 30’ from the centerline of Rt 47. That means the signs will be on private property and should not be placed without the permission of the landowner.

Destroying anyone’s political sign is childish. However, it is illegal to put signs on the state right-of-way. Doesn’t seem quite right that people running for office to uphold the law and to arrest or fine others for violating the law would put their signs up illegally now does it?
