Hello All,

Thanks for reporting the locations of the sign violators to the Maryland State Highway Administration and the Prince George’s County Government. Campaign signs are going up all over the County and the candidates and elected officials are not adhering to the law. Learn more about who to report to on our website: http://www.pfcpgc.org/GoingDown.html

People for Change has sent letters to the County Executive, Jack Johnson, Council Chair, Tom Dernoga, Vice Chair Andrea Harrison, Senate Chair, J.J. Peters, and Vice Chair C. Anthony Muse asking them to take action against campaign signs violators. We have also placed calls to the Maryland State Highway Administration.

As you know, signs have been placed on government property, erected before the 45 day time limit and have been placed too close to the street and corner.

We need the citizens of Prince George’s County to phone, e-mail and send letters to our elected officials to let them know that these sign violators no respect for the law or the people. And, if they do not follow the law now, what can we expect if they are elected. Are they above the law?

Pay close attention to those individuals who have erected their signs early. Show them that you will not be disrespected by not voting for them in September.

Please share our video with others in the County. They need to know who is violating the law and learn more about who is running for office at: http://www.coalitionforchangepgc.org/
