At the Democratic convention earlier this month, Democrats proposed a moratorium on all campaign signs leading up to this year's upcoming election.
Southold Town Democratic Committee chairman Art Tillman wrote in an email to North Fork Patch that he thinks the signs detract from Southold's appearance and are unnecessary expenses.
"I believe both parties and the town would benefit from the moratorium which I strongly believe most residents would prefer not to have spread out along our roads and neighborhoods," he wrote.
In considering the ban, Denis Noncarrow, head of the Southold GOP, said that the issue is a tough one — he doesn't want to see anyone's freedom of speech limited.
"It's hard to tell people that they can't put signs up on their own lawns," Noncarrow said. "But we can come to a hybrid agreement where maybe we limit the big signs or times when the signs can go out."
In addressing the fiscal impact of political signage, Noncarrow said he feels that "here's no real issues this year."
"Southold is one of the on Long Island," he said.
What do you think? Do you think a ban or a limit on political signs benefit or hinder Southold Town?
