Samuelson: Calls for shorter campaigns

Posted

I’ve often wondered if there is a person out there who has had their vote affected by a political sign that they’ve seen along a street?

For me, it is usually a negative thing, like the individual who has eight signs, one after the other within a few hundred feet of each other along the thoroughfare.

Even more off-putting is the sign that blocks my view at an intersection.

I could ask the same question about the negative blurbs with which we are bombarded on television. Couldn’t there be some control over these things, including some regulations over the length of time campaigning can occur?
