Sign of the times

To the Editor:

The next election cycle remains some time away but, sad to say, those pesky real estate agent-size political signs that scar our townscapes will be returning to a garden in your neighborhood in the not-too-distant future.

Now is the time for our town council to limit their use by ordinance.

Last Columbus Day weekend, with beautiful weather and street gardens in full color, our visitors, coming to spend their money in our restaurants and B and B’s, and shop in our galleries, had a difficult time seeing the flowers past the forest of political signs.

The intersections of Eden and West streets, and West Street and Eagle Lake Road represent only two obvious examples.

Surely I am not the only one who wished politicians had more respect for the character of our beautiful town.
