Illegal signs a nuisance

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - 22:20

As I drive down the public highway and city streets, I constantly see illegal campaign signs on public property (streets, right of ways, etc.).

All candidates receive letters informing them that this is not allowed and is illegal. This information is also posted on the APOC website, where candidates constantly go to for information, APOC Report forms, etc.

If a candidate can’t even obey the laws before they are elected, how do we expect them to abide by them if elected and in a position to be influenced by outside interests? This happened in a big way not too long ago. Everyone turned a blind eye until Feds raided the legislative offices. It had to progress that far.

It’s time to let these people seeking a position of public trust know that we don’t want lawbreakers in charge of our state. If you see an illegal sign, please give that candidate a call and let them know that Alaskans are watching and there are consequences for illegal campaigning.
