You can’t put a campaign sign there

you can't put a campaign sign thereOne of the more clever Facebook pages of recent times has to be “You can’t put a campaign sign there,” which launched on Sept. 9. The candidates probably didn’t place the signs themselves, of course, but it’s still amusing.

After three days, Chuck Horton leads the race with seven allegedly illegal sign placements, followed by Howie Hanson and Karl Spring, who each have just one. (That’s just counting the gallery images; it looks like there are also a few “visitor posts” that aren’t in the gallery.)

That’s quite a lead for Horton, but at this stage Perfect Duluth Day’s prognosticators still think it’s too close to call.

So Horton suspects that somebody stole 14 of his signs and placed them illegally for the sole purpose of starting a Facebook page? Interesting.

That on ramp to 35 at 21st East doesn't seem like private land.

Reading through the comments on that page, Howie's sign was legit, and he has not illegally placed any. They retracted that one. And comments suggest the signs on 21st have been put up and taken down last night and put up again this morning.

Chuck Horton for Duluth Mayor

Thought I'd squeeze one in before the Primary Election results. This is on the north end of South 69th Avenue West at Raleigh Street, land probably platted for a continuation of 69th, sitting in between two sections of state-owned property.

Legally placed Horton campaign signs far outnumber those of any other mayoral candidate in this neighborhood, by the way, according to an unofficial poll taken by my eyes. Now let's see how the voting goes ...

Update for the record: The Horton sign on Raleigh Street has been removed.

In the realm of legally placed signs, I'm finally noticing some support for Emily Larson in my neighborhood ... or maybe this person just likes orange.

Emily Larson and Alanna Oswald
