THANKS for campaign sign clean-up

Original post made by Resident on Nov 4, 2010

Want to express appreciation for candidates and their supporters for the very timely clean-up / removal of campaign signs just one day after the election.

Passing the intersection of Valley / Hopyard multiple times daily, the suddenly clean landscape / business areas is refreshing.

THANKS to all candidates and their supporters who adhere to the gentlepersons' agreement not to put up signs too early, and to promptly take them down.

Pleasanton should be proud of our level of polite civic engagement.

A huge thank you to Scott Walsh, (retired fire fighter) for taking charge of collecting all the campaign signs from public places. A big job!! Its also nice to have the acknowledge of the fast clean-up from residents as campaigns are done by volunteers.

Meanwhile, a week later, David Harmer's giant, illegally posted billboard is still sitting out there on 680. I'm sure he'll be happy to have Caltrans (aka the taxpayers) remove it. And yes, his staff has known for weeks that it is there.

Well, there still is a McGovern and Karla Brown sign on Kolln Street. I think the house is registerd to Ayala. What gives? I walk by it everyday and this is day 8. Isnt that a code violation?
Be cool.
