Enough with the political signs

A reminder to the losers and winners alike in Tuesday's election: The clock is ticking on the deadline to take down those unsightly signs.

Once again in this election, sadly, it proved too much to hope that all those candidates aspiring to high places in law enforcement or the justice system would follow the rules for political signs, especially the one prohibiting them on public property including rights of way.
