Sign crop blooming early

The City Council races are now beginning, and already I’m noticing some candidates are allowing their signs to be placed on traffic islands on very busy arterials. Does the city of Spokane really allow political signs to be placed on its property?

Apart from the obvious safety and distraction issues, does the city, by allowing this, imply that it supports certain candidates? My concern is that by allowing one candidate to use these islands, all candidates must be allowed the same privilege, resulting in a hodgepodge of gaudy signs, each one trying to outdo the other in size and placement.

I, for one, do not care to have junk piles growing in the middle of our streets. Would a member of city government please give us the city of Spokane’s position on this issue? Thank you very much.
