Opinion: Keep political signs off lawnsBy Guest
I have resided in Canton for over 30 years, and I have always been proud that at election time, Canton, unlike surrounding towns, was not littered with trashy candidate signs all over citizens’ properties.
I had assumed it was a town ordinance banning them. However, I became even more proud of the citizens of Canton when I learned that it was an unspoken honor code of respect for neighbors and property that kept the signs away, not an ordinance.
Unfortunately, in the last several weeks that code seems to have been breached, as more and more elections signs have appeared. I would urge all citizens of Canton, no matter what political persuasion, to return to honoring this code and keep the signs off the lawns.
It is far better to continue to bask in the glow of neighborliness and respect for neighborhoods and properties than to move into the harshness of a town ordinance.
