City Elections

Take Me To Post Comment Form

This is an Open letter to candidates running for local office.

You cannot help but notice signs posted all over Statesboro for local candidates but the ones that really caught my eye were by Mr. Jonathan McCollar and posted on City property in business districts and residential. It only took about five minutes for me to find the City Ordinance which I think prohibits this activity, see below. If this is an example of his organization, planning and respect for the City you have to wonder about his leadership. Judging by the fact that a lot of the signs are disappearing, it seems that a lot of voters feel the same way I do.
If there is a response I’m sure it will be something to the effect that supporters did it and he had no idea. However, if you want to respond, it’s your election and you are responsible.

Section 1507. Signs in the public right-of-way.

No signs shall be allowed within the public right-of-way or other public property, except for the following:
1.Public signs erected by or on behalf of a governmental body that exercises jurisdiction over that right-of-way.
2.Information signs of a public utility regarding its poles, lines, pipes, or facilities.
3.Emergency warning signs erected by a governmental body, a public utility company or a contractor doing authorized or permitted work within the public right-of-way.
4.Portable signs subject to the provisions of section 1506 C.

Any sign erected or installed on any type of public property in violation of this section shall be forfeited to the public and subject to confiscation and removal by the city without notice. In addition to other remedies provided by this article, the city shall have the right to recover from the owner or person posting such sign the full cost of removal and disposal of the sign.

I'll stand corrected if there is a City Ordinance that allows political signs as an exemption.
