It's campaign time: Here come the signs

Saturday marks 1st day political signs can be placed in front yards

If you like a wide variety of political campaign signs, look out your front window tomorrow morning. You're likely to see quite a few.

Saturday is the first day Pleasanton allows political signs to be posted in front yards. They must be removed within three days after the election, which will be held Nov. 2.

Because of active campaigns already under way for governor, the U.S. Senate and Congress, and other state and local races, it's expected there will be more political signs posted on city streets and fences, including areas where signs aren't allowed. Pleasanton's code enforcement office will no doubt keep busy removing those that are illegal.

In Pleasanton, two candidates are vying for mayor, four for two seats on the City Council, and three for two seats on the school board. They're all expected to have yard signs which campaign managers will offer to supporters. Generally, they can be obtained on a candidate's website with delivery included. Of course, donations to that candidate's campaign always are appreciated.
