Punish illegal sign owners

All right Drew, Robin and the rest of the extremist right-wing in this county, it’s time to read up and learn a bit about the idea of civil disobedience. If you’re going to break the law in order to make a political statement (such as illegal signs), then you need to be prepared to peacefully accept the consequences of your actions.

Why is it that people like you, CPR-INC, and PYPR feel that you can readily break the law and not have to bear the penalty? For some reason you feel that you are above the law. Will the two of you use this same lack of integrity if elected supervisor? Will you be picking and choosing which laws apply to whom if you get into office?

The way I see it, the county should treat both of you and your followers the same way that the county treats other people who break the law. People with illegal signs should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, without asking for special treatment.
