I received this e-mail from a city official, and I just got of the phone with him and he said that publicly displayed Ron Paul signs need to be taken down. He said you should call him if you have any questions. From: Craig.Coffey@opkansas.org
Sir, I got your name of the Paul Official Site. I hope you assist me. There has been a recent proliferation of Paul political ground signs within the City limits of Overland Park. These signs are regulated by our City Sign Code. At this time, the signs are not permitted to be displayed. We would appreciate your help in removing them right away. Your cooperation is appreciated. I can be contacted at OP City Hall at 895-6207.
This link will tell you the City's policy on political signs. Please scroll down to the section addressing political signs.
Note: Many from our group have linked to this city code and found no law broken by placing Ron Paul signs out on private or public property by timing or placment.
I'm posting here to let people know this is happening already and we must put the burden of proof back in the hands of these "officials". Show Me The Law. Anything other than that are suggestions and we should NOT treat Ron Paul supporters like law brakers if they in fact are NOT braking any law.
Would you agree?
After our KC Billboard project www.ronpaulkc.com/blogs you can see how the political wimp dogs are getting nervous about the on the ground grass fire support out here.
