I don't believe that posters are popular with the public and as such I do not intend to erect any election posters in the run up to this years' election on June 5th.
Putting up posters has come to be seen as a defacing of public property with complaints about them increasing every time there is an election. I will have comprehensive literature with me on the canvass and I would hope that it and my track record of hard work over the last 10 years will see me through.
Putting up posters s a huge job anyway (for my dad!!!) and a thankless one. People do not want to see them on every pole.
I also welcome the new regulations limiting their use. Posters can not now be erected until May 7th, one month before the elections and must be taken down within 7 days of polling date.
