HoCo’s tolerance for illegal campaign signs has broken. Last week independent senate candidate Rob Sobhani blanketed HoCo roadways with multiple campaign signs in single locations. That apparently was the straw that broke the camels back. Up until now the county had tolerated campaign signs placed illegally in county right of ways and a few school board candidates took advantage of this. Last week all illegal campaign signs were caught up in a sweep by HoCo road crews. Loco candidates can thank Rob Sobhani for this change of heart.
Yesterday Mr. Sobhani made a brief campaign appearance at the
early voting location accompanied by his own film crew. Council chair Mary Kay
Sigaty was working the polling site on behalf of school board candidate EllenFlynn Giles when Rob, with crew in tow, approached her. After introducing
herself, Mary Kay took the opportunity to upbraid the candidate for his illegal
HoCo loco sign saturation. Rob tried brushing off the criticism by laying the
blame on “overzealous” campaign workers. Bain Senior Center
Mary Kay wasn't having any of that. “"That's the excuse we all use,” she responded, “but ultimately, those illegal signs are your responsibility."
A witness tells me that at this point the camera crew stopped filming.
