Read between the Signs!

We all know the adage “read between the lines”! It is a way of describing the need to understand there is probably more to the issue, story, comments etc. At this election period it seems we need to “read between the signs”. I truly hope that all our citizens in Lacombe will take the time to thoroughly do their due diligence to inform themselves of the platforms of each candidate prior to election day and then vote with knowledge. Take time to read, take time to listen and discuss!

With all the signage out right now,(as the city acknowledges with the news release on Sept 26, more signs than typical) please do not vote based on quantity, but on the candidate and their platform. I do NOT place any signs on private properties without permission from the owner. It is frustrating to me to know the city, with their news release, needed to inform our residents (and candidates) that permission is needed for sign placement on private property. I am aware of private property owners who have had signs placed without their permission. I then question, if the candidate cannot show enough respect for the rights of our citizens for their private properties, what will happen if they are elected? Will that same attitude of lack of respect prevail? I sure hope not.

I do listen, I am objective, I am committed, and I am approachable! I have the greatest respect for our citizens considering they had elected me in 2010 for city council and I respectfully request the same honor again for the next four years.

Please citizens, “READ BETWEEN THE SIGNS” !!

  1. What about the excess of signs on “public” property? I don’t think the schools and parks have votes, or have given permission for signs!

    1. Alberta transportation sets the rules. Parks and school yards are considered public property so therefore candidates do have the right to posts election signs unless the municipality has other signage bylaws that prevent it. In Lacombe these areas are not excluded from election signs.

  2. An intelligent point of view that I am sure, unfortunately, will be attacked by the “Friends of” the guy with most signs. Please don’t let a few dozen angry people who have lots of money to spend with a Texas sign company influence you. We’ll spoken Peter!
