I spoke at Richmond City Council's Governmental Operations meeting of October 28, 2010 in support of Ordinance 2010-190 sponsored by Councilman Bruce Tyler [1st District] which would prohibit elected officials' names from appearing on street repair notification signs. I believe putting their names on the signs is the equivalent of campaign electioneering and reinforces the entrenchment of incumbents. State election law prohibits the posting of campaign signs in the public right of way. Campaign signs must be located on private property with the owner's consent. The penalty for violating this law is $50 per sign.
