TRENTON – Senator Loretta Weinberg has introduced legislation which would fine campaign groups who choose to post signs on public property.
“The proliferation of campaign signs on public property is not only an eyesore, but it pollutes the environment because some groups do not go back and remove the signs once elections are over,” said Senator Weinberg, D-Bergen. “More importantly though, this is an issue of safety. Many of the campaign signs are put up at dangerous intersections. In my District, Route 4 doesn’t have a median, but I always see campaign signs up and down the road. I would hate for someone to get hit trying to put up a campaign sign on the highway.”
