Over-doing the campaign signs

Original post made by Glenn Raggio, Menlo Park: Downtown, on Oct 24, 2006

Successful incumbents don't need to over-advertise themselves.
I have worked for the city of Menlo Park and lived here for years. I'm embarrassed by the last four to five years of this City Council. The word "silly" comes to mind, closely followed by "sad." The council's pathetic pleas -- in the form of lawn signs that fill the streets of Menlo Park -- for residents to support continued failure should serve as a warning. He or she who has the most signs apparently cannot stand on their own records.
I cannot recall when this city has needed a more serious change in its direction and leadership. Let's be clear: It's not just a slate we're being offered, but rather a train that can only follow one track. Let's get off here.
