COMMENTARY: Follow the Rules: Campaign signs are up far too early

Local campaigns should follow the county's established rules when it comes to posting campaign materials

Election season is upon us again and we are seeing giant signs go up all over the place supporting one candidate or another. Please follow the rules.

Casey Lucius signs (as well as others) are now littering the city of Hollister, in clear violation of the municipal code that doesn't allow them until 60 days before an election. It's bad enough we have to see these signs littered throughout our communities, but please don't put them up before their time, and please take them down promptly.
