Sign Of The Times

Taking It To The Streets, Literally

Unless you've not been out of your house for a really long time, you may have noticed there is an election coming soon. There is no shortage of political signs at nearly any street or intersection in Lenoir City. I for one have no problem with the abundance of campaign signage as long as the signs are removed promptly after the election. In fact, I enjoy this time before elections, when all the candidates are out working hard to get all the votes they can. There is just something uniquely American about the whole process.

Even the idealistic Mayor Brookshire, who feels he is so above the rest and who vowed in his first ad "to use as few signs as possible", has not been able to avoid getting in to the act. Apparently "to use as few signs as possible" means the same as put up as many signs as possible.

Then there are the liquor lovers with their agenda and those of us who oppose their plan.

Elections are like any other competition. The teams are chosen and the games begin. there will be winners and losers. But unlike football or baseball, the stakes are much higher. There is a lot at stake for a lot of people depending on the outcome of these games.

The people of Lenoir City, for the first time in a long time, have an opportunity to make some positive changes in Lenoir City government. Which ever team you chose to be on, please cast your vote. If you don't vote don't complain.
