Observations about election signs and ads

Seems like a lot of political signs are going up. Hopefully some of them will be starting to come down after Aug. 11. Also, looks like everybody is running for something. I just wonder who figures out where the signs or newspaper ads should be. One grows into many more in some locations.

Reading The Maui news on July 15 there was a political ad for someone on the obituary page. I thought the candidate died.

Some political signs are in funny places, like the one for a candidate on Highway 30 in Lahaina that is near a church with a sign on it that reads, the name above all names, “Jesus,” but the political sign next to it has the candidate’s name above it. Hope he didn’t make Jesus mad.
