  1. While driving around this County and others it is interesting to note the ‘diversity’ of signs.

    Reick, has by a long shot the best signs around.

    Simple, not confusing except he left off any indication of party affiliation but then then so does Franks, Yensen and many others.

    If one has a D or an R behind their name, they should be required to indicate so on all campaign materials!
