So-called yard signs supporting candidates for the Nov. 6 municipal election for Pleasanton mayor and City Council went up Saturday, the first day these signs could be publicly posted.
Although called yard signs, many are large posters, some as large as a full-sized sheet of plywood.
The signs can only be posted on private property with the authorization of the property owner, including the Alameda County Fairgrounds, businesses and private schools.
By law, they must be removed the day after the election, on Nov. 7.
Although most signs were posted in accord with city laws, at least one candidate -- Erlene DeMarcus for City Council -- found that her campaign assistants had posted her signs on public property, where code enforcement officers told her to take them down. In fact, one of DeMarcus' billboards will still there this morning, on the Bernal Community Park fence facing Pleasanton Avenue.
Most of the candidates also stood with their signs and offered their own voter information at Farmers Market, where they're likely to be stationed every Saturday through Nov. 3.
The candidates, in addition to Cook-Kallio and DeMarcus are Jerry Thorne for mayor, and Jerry Pentin, Karla Brown and Miked Harris for City Council.
