NH 2020 signs break moral code

After reading a letter the other day about the No on NH 2020 signs, I was astonished by how much malice that seemed to have poured into the letter.

I drive by at least three of the signs every day. I am not sure about the restrictions on political signs, but think that these signs break a moral, if not legal code. It is one thing to voice your free speech, and I applaud those who do, but it is a completely different thing to impose your views on others.

I think by now the entire county knows that there are people in opposition to NH 2020, (they probably aren’t convincing many people to vote against NH 2020 either) so the considerate thing for those who have the signs would probably be to tone them, maybe even take them down.

I suggest that you read The Union’s Opinion from Tuesday, Jan. 22.
