Bertani, please collect campaign signs

From page A11 | June 20, 2014 |

The election concluded June 3. As I drive through the community, I see that most candidates commenced sign collection the day after. However, several of Board of Supervisors candidate Pam Bertani’s campaign signs remain, partially affixed to fences, while some have fallen or have toppled over. Several of these signs blow carelessly about the streets or have settled at roadsides or ditches.

Does Bertani plan to leave her signs to add to the unsightliness of our ever-declining aesthetic? Did she note the location where she placed her signs so that she knew where to go to collect them? Maybe she posted them in a free-for-all without a care of retrieval. I don’t know.

Bertani needs to send someone out to pick up her litter. I would’ve called her and asked her to do so myself, but she doesn’t return calls.

    The race she is in isn't done until November. You'll probably see a lot more of them.

    L, they are two different elections and I believe the signs still need to come down within 7 days. They can't go back up until 60 days prior to the November election. I may be wrong. Maybe Mr. Joyce can provide additional detail.

    She wants her name to remain out their in the public eye in hopes it improves her chances to climb the political ladder on the backs of the citizens of Solano county.

    Candidates leaving signs has ben an issue here for years. Most of them are placed illegally in the first place but that is their problem and nobody cares enough to worry about that. There are specific rules about removing signs and who can do so. I have never heard of a candidate being fined for leaving them but after ten days signs could be considered litter.

    Per Caltrans regarding political signs, you may put them up 90 days prior to an election and they must be removed ten days after. That should answer any questions about Bertani's signs remaining until November...

    Caltrans has nothing to say about signs in Fairfield. They only deal with Freeways and state maintained highways

    BTW, litter caries a $1,000 fine each offense. Pam, who's gonna pay THAT bill? Enforcement is really being challenged on this one as we speak! ;)

    It is the same thing with all the "Garage Sale" signs that people hang and never remove! Seems like a citation should be issued.

    there's still a Frank Miranda sign up on Rockville road from an election a couple years ago. Some signs aren't put up by the politician's campaign but are handed out to private individuals who place them on their private property. Wonder what the law is about leaving those signs up?

    I once saw a life sized cardboard cut out of George W Bush facing out of someones kitchen sliding glass door. It was at the Woodlands golf course, just outside of Houston. The whole group had a good chuckle.

    Instead of coming here and trying to put her on blast why didn't you call her and see what her response is? If, at that point, it wasn't to your liking then send in a letter to the editor. I feel like you are doing everything you can to try to get your name out there. You have no life experience and need to mature.

    Comm Did you even read the story and some of the post? The story said streets and roads, some of the post said everything from 72 hours to 7 days my very own post said 3 houses away so we are not talk about a freeway and we are not trying to blast Pam we are simply saying clean your crap up.

    Hey common sense, common sense would tell someone that they shouldn't leave their signs out for 7 months. You are soo pathetic trolling around articles looking to attack Joseph. You're probably twice his age... I have known Joey 27 years. How do your know Joseph has no life experience. Clearly you get your information because you were so interested in him you referenced his Facebook to get your information. How do you know he didn't put all of his personal information to avoid crazies like you. I'll tell you myself, by the time Joseph was 22 years old he managed a large local business in Fairfield, he left there after he made a ton of money in real estate investments. By the time he was 26 he was a consultant and project manager on many retail development projects. No life experience? goes to show you know nothing. My friend has a plan. When he decides to come forward with that plan, then his finance and experience will be provided to the public. until then it's none of your business. Looks like you do the opposite of getting your name out there you unhappy internet troll! You should title your comments Mr. Slander!
