Rebholz and Political Sign Laws

    Commissioner-by-appointment John Rebholz does not seem to think much of laws on political campaign signs because he keeps putting them where they are not supposed to be. That may be how they did things up north where Rebholz came from, but it is not how we do things around here.

    NC election law allows signs on the public right of way during a period immediately before an election, BUT does not allow them in front of homes of businesses or institutions without permission of that business or resident. Many businesses do not want any political signs, some allow any political sign if someone asks, and some allow just signs of candidates they support. Non-profits are not allowed to engage at all in politics.

    Rebholz put up a sign on the 3rd street frontage of 1st Methodist Church, which the church had removed. He has put up signs on city of Washington property, and in front of some businesses without asking permission. Some signs at houses in Democrat areas also may lack permission.
