Take down those old signs!

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar
 

After each election there are a few signs that people forget to remove. I post them here to remind people to remove their signs and because it is fun. It is not our duty to go and remove any signs we see for you. These signs are from the 2012 election.

Send in your pictures and I will post them. I will give you credit for your picture if you ask.

This home often keeps up their signs long after an election.

Simi Valley City Council candidate Mark Littleton cleaned up most of his signs. This one by the mall escaped his efforts.

Do you have pictures of old signs that have not been removed? Email them to me and I will post them.


Take down those old signs! Scott Wilk and Paul Strickland

UPDATE: I drove by on Friday September 9th and this sign remains illegally attached to a traffic sign.

This is my post from August:


UPDATE:Scott Wilk emailed me and wrote he would take care of it personally.

After elections I often post pictures of signs to remind candidates to remove them. In this picture we have a sign from State Assembly candidate Paul Strickland (R) and a sign from State Assembly candidate Scott Wilk (R). This picture was taken Tuesday night at the end of the Topanga Canyon exit on the 118. I posted it on August 7th on the Facebook page for my blog to remind the candidates to remove their old signs.

Campaigns are not allowed to attach signs to traffic signs. I am surprised that Caltrans has not either removed the sign or asked Scott Wilk to remove the sign posted on a traffic sign. Caltrans actually can remove signs posted in violation of State law and send a bill to the campaign.

This is among the worst offenders of an old sign posted that I have seen. It is posted in violation of Caltrans rules and it has been up for a long time. It is also in an area of very high traffic. How is it posible the campaign has not seen it? Do they not campaign in that area at all? It should not have taken this long. Actually, it should not have been there in the first place!

Sometimes supporters without permission post signs. But in this case they have had a very long time to remove this sign.

Scott Wilk, take down that old sign!

Take Down Those Old Signs: 2010 Primary Edition Peter Foy Edition

After each election I post an entry asking readers to send me pictures of campaign signs that campaigns haven't removed yet. This sign is at the corner of Alamo and Texas in Simi Valley. The June 8th election was almost a month ago but Peter Foy's sign remains.

So far Peter Foy has the record for a sign up from the primary. Send me any pictures of other signs and included the location information. I won't post your name unless you ask me to include it. With only a few weeks before we start seeing signs for general election candidates let's get the old signs removed. Let's see which party's candidates leave their signs up the longest. So far Peter Foy for the Republicans is holding the record.

This blast from the past picture is of Tony Strickland many years ago when he was working on a campaign posing with some of the signs from the opposition. Click here to see what I wrote when I first posted this picture. Short version: I think it was after a campaign, Calitics.com thinks it was during a campaign. Either way, it was a long time ago.

After every election there are a few stray signs standing. Sometimes candidate forgot where they put them and sometimes their supporters that put them up didn't let the campaign know where they placed them. I don't mind seeing signs all over the place during an election season. Part of me sees it as evidence of a vibrant democracy but part of me is frustrated that candidates need to reach out to voters without much substance. That said we all know they are a part of modern democracy.

But now it is time for those signs to be cleaned up. Send me any pictures of stray signs across Ventura County that you see that remain posted. Let me know the location and if you want me to use your name. Send them to briandennert@yahoo.com and let's work together to clean up from the primary.

Take down that sign Carole Lutness Edition

Just by looking at the background can you identify where in Simi Valley this photo was taken?

After each political season there is always a few signs that stay up for months that are overlooked by the campaigns when they are cleaning up. This time all of the campaigns did a pretty good job of picking up their signs in Simi Valley. But what about in your neighborhood?

This sign is in Simi Valley. If Carole Lutness gives me permission I will go take it down myself.

If you see any signs that remain up, email me and I will post them.

After each election there are a few signs that seem to stay up for months in some places. In Ventura County I have used this blog to encourage candidates to take down their signs. If you see a sign still up, send me a photo and I will post it.

Make sure to include the location and if you want credit for the photo.

Click on continue reading for a contest that Carole Lutness, former candidate for state assembly, is running to encourage people to take down her signs.

Let the games begin.

Take Down Those Old Signs: June Primary Edition 2.0

JudgeJULY.jpg
( These signs are in a private yard in East Simi Valley and were up as of July 14th.)

As a public service after an election I post pictures of signs up even though the polls closed weeks ago. In the past it has provided a little bit of comic relief and encouraged people to pick up their signs.

If you see your campaign's sign listed here you can give permission for others to pick it up if it is in a public location. If it is in a supporter's yard give them a call and tell them the election is over.

If you see a sign that remains up, take a picture and send it to me. Include the date and approximate location.

The judges race is over. There is no run off. Bennett won the race. Time to take down the sign. As far as the Rep. Gallegly sign goes he is on the ballot in November so that makes more sense.

Any signs sticking around too long in your neighborhood? Please send them in for me to post.

( This Michael Tenenbaum sign was photographed July 10th on Cochran Avenue in Simi Valley on the north side of the street between Target and Sycamore. Michael, can I take it down for you? Credit for picture not given.)

Let the games begin. I have a few others to share including some Gallegly signs and a sign for the judges race. What about your part of the district? Any signs hanging around too long?

In a bit of strange news my blog and I were the subject of a Channel 3 News Piece. They didn't even interview me.

This one was sent in from a reader that spotted it in the Knolls on the way up to Rocky peak. I don't know all the regulations covering The Knolls but I know it is outside the city of Simi Valley's sign regulations.

Candidates and their supporters lose track of all the locations that their signs are up at. If you see an old sign snap a picture and e-mail it in so they can go and pick it up. I know Donna Prenta will have it picked up right away.

Donna, is it okay if any reader picks it up for you?

I saw this sign outside of Wienerschnizel on Los Angeles tonight Feb. 24th.

As a test to see if Peter Foy and his team read this blog let's count down the time it takes to disappear. Of course it has been close to four months at so far.

How is it that the city has a new punitive sign law but yet this sign has been up for this long? I wish the city would enforce current laws before making new regulations.

Anyways, if you see old signs from ANY candidate e-mail them in and I will post them.

This picture is a few weeks old, so most likely the sign is no longer there. I am posting this because a reader sent it in from the cell phone camera ( that explains the pixels) and it is in a funny location.

The sign was last seen at the corner of Tapo and Township. Can anyone do a field report and tell me if the sign is still there?

If you see any signs left over froma previous election, e-mail me a picture with the location and the date and I will post it. I post them as a public service so that candidates will remove their signs. Sometimes a zealous supporter puts them out and the campaign doesn't even know where they all went. I wonder which candidate will be the last one standing this season? ( Their signs that is!)

In this ongoing series I post pictures of signs left over from the primary season around town as a gentle nudge for candidates and their supporters to take them down.

In this update a Bob Larkin for State Assembly sign is currently up on First Street south of Los Angeles Avenue.

Is there a sign still up that is bothering you? E-mail it to me and I will post it. Include details like the date of the picture and the location.
