Letter to the Editor: A Suggestion for a Time-Restriction on Political Signs

This past month, I made several trips across Wisconsin and into western states. Traveling the highways, byways and back roads, the scenery was beautiful – lush greenery everywhere, ponds and streams, flowers in bloom, livestock grazing in pastures, an opportunity to really appreciate our beautiful country. 

The last few weeks, driving throughout Door County, it seems our countryside has been populated with numerous large political signs, likely in place for our viewing pleasure until Nov. 5.  I know all about free speech, but this signage seems to be a severe distraction from our natural beauty, for residents and visitors alike. Perhaps consideration should be given to a 30 day pre-election timeframe on political signage.
