  1. Sunshine blogger: I am more interested in junk signs from the 70’s and 80’s, preferably from loser 2% libertarian candidates. Know of anyone? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  2. No angels signs have popped up they jb’s fat face on them. He and the other 149999 union luvin edutators need jobs.tick tac tick tac ……

  3. Nob, don’t you ever get tired of looking like an ass? A Bob Miller Ass kisser? I don’t hear a word about the things going on in Algonquin township regarding the awful Millers- only desperate defense. But Brettman can’t put a sign in the yard he’s maintained for 30 yrs? What a goon you are

  4. The issue is political signs, try to stay with the flow.
    Illegal is illegal, let the chips fall where they may.
    Brettman needs to follow the rules also right?

  5. State law regulates where commercial signs can go and how large or bright they can be, but leaves the issue of political lawn signs to local governments. Some towns restrict such displays to 45 days before the election. Some mandate 30 days, while others limit them to 60 days.
    The good news for those who want to show off their political support – those limits are almost all assuredly unconstitutional.
    Last summer, an esoteric but far-reaching U.S. Supreme Court called Reed v. Town of Gilbert clarified when municipalities may impose content-based restrictions on signage.
    The short answer? Almost never.
    It also found that when government does impose restrictions, they are subject to “strict scrutiny,” which almost always proves fatal to local regulations abridging free speech.

    SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
    Syllabus REED ET AL.
    v.
    TOWN OF GILBERT, ARIZONA, ET AL

    CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR
    THE NINTH CIRCUIT
    No. 13–502. Argued January 12, 2015—Decided June 18, 2015

  6. Our legion of justice, senior legal analyst lesson of the day…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  7. Ignoring the rules by a gov agency always costs somehow sooner or later.
    The ruling sited was for permitted perminent signs.
    Does that ROW have restrictions on placement of temp signs on it or not is the issue?

  8. We and You, Nob, have much bigger fish to fry than whether a temporary sign is in the right of way.

  9. I’ve been told rules are rules.
    A candidate that can’t follow the rules is?
