All candidates ... PLEASE PICK UP YOUR SIGNS now that the election is over. They are littered everywhere ...

Jeff, in addition to my commitment to spend less than $1000 (which did not work in my favor) I also committed to pick up my signs. Fotunatley most of my signs where in front yards. I picked up all the signs that I personally placed. I am sure there are a few others that my friends and neighbors placed and I will pick them up as soon as I spot them this week. I am annoyed by all the signs as well !!
