Pinellas diges: More campaign signs ahead
LARGO -- There may be a few more signs at polling locations this March. City commissioners this week agreed to allow campaign signs on public property and rights of way near public buildings used as a polling place. Though the change still needs a final vote, it probably will be adopted in time for the March 4 election, when three seats on the commission open. The issue was raised at Tuesday's commission meeting after several commissioners complained that polls located on private property, such as a church, could be used for campaigning but not those on city property. Commissioners agreed the distinction appeared to be hypocritical and voted unanimously in favor of changing it.
