Despite Sandy's Disruptions, Should Campaigns Be Picking Up Signs?

Some local political candidates still have campaign signs around town.

There was no doubt in the days leading up to Election Day that Hurricane Sandy disrupted political campaigns. But now that it has passed, do you think the signs should be removed immediately, or do you feel there are there more pressing priorities in light of the storm?

Bill Faulk, a representative for Brookhaven town supervisor-elect Ed Romaine, said the campaign staff has plans to remove the signs as soon as possible. "We've asked our campaign volunteers to retrieve all outstanding signs and either return them to HQ or keep them at home," he said. "Our effort to remove them began the day after Election Day."

What do you think? Are the signs a nuisance? Log in to Patch and share your opinion as a comment below.

Their quick to put them out but forget about them after the election. They shouldn't be allowed at all anytime. Just goes to show you how much respect the campain people have for the community. THEY REALLY DON'T CARE.

It is disgusting how once the election is over the signs take forever to come down. They should be required to get them ALL down within 7 days or face being charged a penalty by the town or county.
