Letter: Gladys Lewis, Lucketts

Editor: Thank you so much for your editorial and informative article in the Aug. 29 issue explaining the county’s regulations on temporary signs. 

Every year at the very times that we invite tourists to our county for events such as the Fall Farm tour and the Waterford Fair, candidates are plastering our highways and byways with illegal signs—those placed with no permits, those that are too big, those illegally placed in the VDOT right of way—all detracting from the very thing that the tourists come here to enjoy.

You would think that the very people who make our regulations, or wish to make them, would abide by them! Let’s all vote for those candidates who respect our county regulations.

Gladys Lewis, Lucketts

    Indeed. And our sheriff Mike Chapman and two candidates who are lawyers and should know better–Caleb Kershner and Nicole Whittman–have oversized signs in the VDOT right-of-way along Route 7 and other roads, and metal posts that pose a danger to highway workers and drivers.
