Political Sign Removal Draws Sharp Criticism in Ocean Pines

Oct 16, 2012

Political lawn signs are the stuff of American elections.

But, Joan Gentile with the Worcester County Republican Central Committee says that signs for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and President Barak Obama were removed from private property by an Ocean Pines Association employee.

She told the Salisbury Daily Times, “He has no right to do that.”

If there was a problem the Republican said the OPA should have sent letters to residents notifying them of the rules.

She says that OPA has told her organization the signs can be retrieved.
