There is no need to remind you that the National elections are less than a month away.
There is also no need to remind you that political candidate's signs are one of the worst violators of state law and city ordinances. However, extreme caution and good judgment should be used when considering their removal from the public rights of way.
There are numerous cities, towns and municipalities around the country where locally elected magistrates or judges make their own rules and interpretations of law based on the current political environment.
One thing to consider when contacting a local code enforcement office is that their particular office may be a prime target for budget reductions. They know this and have a tendency not to be as proactive when complaints are voiced on political sign abuse.
We have found in the past that contacting the campaign manager, whom most of the time happens to be an attorney, will have little effect. They will rattle off a long line of 'legalese' that even they don't understand. One thing they do understand is when you remind them that CAUSS will get the press involved on the day before election showing their flagrant violations of local ordinances and state law.
