Many businesses in Franklin have yard signs on their properties, not from just one candidate, but several, including the incumbents’ and their opponents’.
So you will see a Tom Taylor for Mayor sign, and right next to it, a Basil Ryan sign.
If you’re scratching your head as to why the neutrality, it actually makes sense.
These businesses have to work with the next mayor and the next alderman, no matter who that individual is. It’s best not to burn any bridges.
In my view, those yard signs are over-rated.
Sure, they’re a part of every political campaign.
They make the candidate feel good.
They make the candidate’s supporters and campaign workers feel good.
And that’s about it.
For example, if I walk down the street and per chance happen upon two or three or four Lena Taylor yard signs, which, for the record, I have not, I am still voting for Scott Walker.
Oh, one more thing about yard signs.
If you’re planning on selecting a candidate based on how nice his/her yard sign looks, please don’t vote.
