I was a little disgusted to see scores of campaign signs for Michael Bennet littering pretty much all of our downtown city park area on July 3rd, the day of his local appearance. I’m talking about an area including the lawns outside of the downtown library and the areas adjacent to the street. The signs were staked to the ground and were not held by living humans.
The encroachment of posted signs in the public right of way (which includes the above areas) is prohibited under Section 8-6-3 of the Boulder municipal code. The Bennet campaign should have been ticketed for a crime that would pretty much instantly entitle anyone else on the planet to a ticket. The fact that he’s presently in office, or has money to spend, or is a swell guy…has absolutely zero to do with the law.
People who support law breakers writing our laws are hereby invited to vote for Bennet. By the way, there were police present who did nothing to correct the situation when informed.
