City Of Houston Campaign Sign Crackdown—My Two Favorite Signs

Houston Mayor Annise Parker says the city will be cracking down on campaign signs that are placed improperly.

Having a campaign war chest  of more than $2 million helps you take the high road when dealing with candidates who have far less money.

That’s a measure of sarcasm on my part.

In fact—I’ve been on the patrol for improperly placed campaign signs myself. I’ve contributed a number of pictures to the Empty Lot Primary blog of signs in vacant lots and in the public right-of-way.

You might ask—“Which two pictures have you enjoyed the most?”

I will show you.

Below is a Bolivar Fraga sign that I took a picture of just yesterday. Showing this sign on the blog allows me to also show you all that fine public art on that blocked-up storefront.

Showing you this picture also permits me to say again that Houston City Council At -Large #2 candidate Bolivar Fraga tells Democrats that he is a Democrat and tells Republicans that he is a Republican.

And then– of course—we have this classic Eric Dick sign.

The Republican Mr. Dick is running in the same race as is Mr. Fraga.

We’ll see in the weeks ahead if the City of Houston is really serious about this effort.

  1. This is really all the lowest of low-information voters need to know: there’s two out of ten in the At Large #2 race that they should NOT vote for.

    Just pick from the other eight.

  2. Is that building on Hempstead near 11th? If it’s what I think it is, that used to be a pretty good little taco shop.

  3. Is there a big vagina that to the right of the sign that combines “Dick” and “entrance”?

    Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

  7. Vote for Gordon Goss gordongoss.com if your for neighborhoods. All the other candidates go on and on and on about creating jobs. If creating jobs were that easy we would all be snapping our fingers. They just tell you what we want to hear.
