yard signs

election is over

I came in 6th in almost all precincts. I came in 2nd in the precinct where Sally Greene and I live. It looks like the write-ins for town council were very minimal. Today I have been busy collecting yard signs and taking them to Cedar Falls Park. While I was there sorting the signs, a woman came by and talked. She did not vote yesterday first because she could not find information about the election and secondly because she thought she could vote on Tuesday at the Senior Center. In terms of signs Maria Palmer and I have the union label on the signs and Sally Greene had the name of a local company on hers. About half of us used plastic and half used paper. (Two candidates had no signs.)At the polling sites George, Maria, James, Ignacio and I had the most signs. Amy and Sally managed to include their Daily Tar Heel endorsement (given early election day morning) on some of their signs. Maria listed her Indy Endorsement and George listed all of his. I had my AFL-CIO and Sierra Club endorsements on my precinct signs. My son Carl told me he had never heard of the AFL-CIO until I mentioned to him my endorsement from them in September.

Stolen Signs

Some jerk or jerks has been stealing signs in Carrboro.All of those running are effected.I have told the police and plan to file a formal complaint.Anyone know who is doing this?

Vote No - yes???

Speaking of signs, does anyone know what is up with the Vote No! signs with the 'Yes' box ticked? There aren't any referenda that I know of on the ballot, so what is it, a surrealism campaign? It's funny, at least.

Sorry I don't have any pictures - it's hard to get the bus to stop so I can take a pic.

Signs 2009

Anyone have any comments about the good, bad and ugly in the signs this year?   Here are photos I took yesterday:

Yard signs of the rich and famous

I drove all over the county this weekend and I'm pretty sure I got a picture of at least one yard sign by every candidate that has one.

By the way, here's some free advice: If you have a limited number of signs and/or volunteers, make sure you get your signs to one of Orange County's three early voting sites!
