I, like many others, have been waiting patiently for removal of the November election political signs that are a blot on our landscape.
State Representative John Maher (R-Upper St. Clair), losing candidate in the Pennsylvania Auditor General race, apparently has not yet gotten the message nor demonstrated any inclination to follow the law, which mandates that signs be promptly taken away following the election.
As of Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012, one Maher sign after another continues to pollute Banksville Road in the Banksville section of Pittsburgh. Weeks after the election, I also noted numerous Maher signs on Ohio River Boulevard in Beaver County during travel there. I am betting those signs remain posted as well.
An individual that leaves their litter posted weeks after an election demonstrates a lack of respect for a citizenry that is anxious to put Election Day behind them.
I have commended Representative Maher and his distinguished opponent for being the exceptions among the candidates for high office, running a clean race. Now it is time for Mr. Maher to clean up our roads. Please remove your litter, sir!
