Political signs now banned on all pubic property

Note: Yes, that is the headline for this article on the Website.

Guam – Senator Tommy Morrison’s substitute bill 138 lapsed into public law 34-67 on November 11th. This means Governor Eddie Calvo neither signed nor vetoed the bill.

This new public law will only allow political signs to be posted on private property. Political signs are defined as signs that advocate voting for or against candidates or “other matters to be considered by the electorate.” However, if the private property is adjacent to any public roadway the political signs must also be at least 8 feet from the paved portion of the roadway “and posted in such a manner that would not impede traffic or a driver’s visibility.” This new sign law will be enforced by the Department of Public Works.

“You cannot put signs on public easements. It’s got to be all on private property and the current signage law which regulates the size of signs still remains intact for residential for commercial for industrial. And what they repealed was—in the past when a political candidate wanted to put up his signs throughout the island they’d come and put a deposit and give them instructions about how to post their signs up, so it doesn’t impede traffic. Well that’s all been repealed,” said DPW Director Glenn Leon Guerrero.

There will no longer be a need to put down a deposit with DPW on these political signs because they simply won’t be allowed on public property anymore.

4. A moment of silence for the lost art of proofreading.

My rule also is no signs in my pubic areas.

6. I used to work on tort reform when I was employed at insurance department.

The very first thing after gathering data for the annual report was run a spellcheck to make certain that public liability didn't become pubic liability instead. By either name...a tort is a tort.

However, you might be missing out on some lucrative advertising income with the personal sign ban.
