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.
