City Council Election Signage

23 Mar

Over the next couple of days I will be getting out and taking pictures of the signs for candidates for City Council. On my normal drive to the station, and without doing an official count, it looks as though Mayor Miller has more signs in more parts of the city. Tom Martin (mayoral candidate) has a concentration of signs in south Lubbock.

This weekend I’ve also seen Jerry Bell’s signs go up, but not as many as Paul Beane. As of now though it looks as if Tom Kiesling has more signs up.

As for District 2, I can’t say anything about those signs, since they are not on my normal drive. However, like I said in the next few days I will make an attempt to check that area out.

I know you really can’t judge an election on who has more signs up, but it’s fun to see.

    I did the same thing, Chad. Lots of signs. I think you might find it interesting if you drove by the homes of the Mayoral candidates. Take a look at who their neighbors are supporting…that says alot.

    Now signs are being STOLEN as candidates become more desperate for free ads. This is very common among “rookies” who want to impress the candidate when most candidates in this race are virtual “losers” in real life. “Dirty tricks” are an old Republican playbook page and signs will disappear daily since most of these candidates are from “sleazy Republican backgrounds”. I personally don’t like signs and believe they are a “turn-off” to many voters and anyone with TOO MANY signs may actually get less votes.I take down signs at polling places AFTER election day(precinct chairs are supposed to do that)and candidates fail to clean up their sign mess regularly.
