"littering" needs to be addressed
A Column by the Editor
posted October 4, 2007
COLUMN – The primary is over and Shane
Massey has been given the Republican nod to challenge Democrat SC House
Rep. Bill Clyburn for the District 25 Senate seat on November 6. Both
are fine men and I expect a true issue based campaign to take place
over the next few weeks. Finally voters can get down to issues and not
have to be inundated with daily mailers with claims of being attacked
while attacking your opponent. I, for one, am tired of the crybabies of
the political arena and want to get down to issues. But a pet peeve of
many should be addressed - when
you lose, how about picking up your political signs as quickly as you
put them out.
primary has passed, the run-off election has passed, and yet there
are still signs that, in my view, are “littering” our roadways. As I
travel the county I am seeing the same signs from all of the Republican
primary candidates still sitting in the same locations. Maybe the
Edgefield County Council, who loves to pass ordinances, could consider
one stating that candidates have one week to remove their signs after
an election or be fined $5 for each one picked up by county road crews
or litter control. Better still would be to fine them for littering, a
much stiffer penalty, for each incident.
It is funny how a candidate will call police and state how “valuable”
the signs are when they are stolen but then leave them for weeks, and
in some cases months, after the election hoping they rot, are stolen,
or fall prey to some other demise. I passed one last week that has been
out since the 2006 election cycle.
That is absurd.
If the signs continue to remain around our county I will begin taking
pictures and posting them in the Wandering Minds and where the sign is
located. I will make sure the name on the sign is clearly visible.
As far as Rep. Bill Clyburn (D) and Shane Massey (R) are concerned, I
wish you well in your endeavors and may the best man win.
