Patch's Poll: Should Politicians Be Fined for Failing to Remove Their Signs?

The state is plastered with campaign ads. Should politicians be held responsible for their timely removal?

After what seemed like an interminable period of intense campaigning, it's all over. The decisions have been made, and the public is ready to move on. 

Few will miss the constant barrage of phone calls, television commercials and radio ads, which will be gone more or less right away.

But what about those signs that plaster town greens and public rights of way? Will we have to look at those until they disintegrate in the spring?

Should politicians be required to remove their signs within a certain time period? Is that strictly a townissue, or should the state get involved?

Take our poll and tell us more in the comments.

Hey, here is a novel idea.....if you have a sign on or near your property, how about YOU actually walk to the curb and throw it in the trash. Enough already with more, bigger, additional government and regulation. Its very simple....the election is over...grab a sign and dispose of it yourself...hey while your out there, help a neighbor and toss his too!

I think that Chris Murphy should remove his signs <I>personally</I>. It will be the ONE useful thing he does in office.
