Give us your platforms, not eyesores

News Oct 14, 2010 Ancaster News

I moved to Dundas eight months ago, and I am still amazed at all the wonderful parks and clean streets we enjoy.

When a neighbour told me we do not have campaign signs in our town, I thought how appropriate that such a environmentally sensitive area would shun such wasteful forms of advertising. But, unfortunately, I noticed some politicians are ruining this wise course of action, and like graffiti on postal boxes, there are signs polluting our streetscape.

I will vote for the candidate who has the best platform, best ideas, and dare we hope for, an inspirational leader. Certainly, my decision will not be based on who can put up the most or the biggest signs.

Please leave Dundas beautiful and take down your signs. Instead, give us your platform, not your campaign eyesores. Respect the town and stop polluting it.
