What yard signs are you seeing in the run up to the 2018 election? Do any of them surprise or intrigue you?
I have about a 30 mile commute that starts in CO-7 (Perlmutter - D) and ends in CO-2 (Polis - D).
The yard sign champion along my commute is Lesley Dahlkemper who is running for Jefferson County Commissioner as a… I’m not 100% sure. I’m guessing democrat based on who has endorsed her and some other info, but her campaign web site doesn’t seem to make mention of party. Is that weird for an office at this level? Is it weird that she has so many yard signs up? I have no idea who her opponent is.
Second place goes to Ed Perlmutter who is my congressman. My commute also gets within a couple hundred yards of his campaign HQ, but his signs are not confined to that area. This is my fourth election day in Colorado and in this district and Ed’s signs have not changed a bit. His opponent is Mark Barrington but so far I have seen no sign of him. Boom! Pun!
For the governor race I have seen one Stapleton-R sign and zero Polis-D signs. Step up your game Jared. If you lose this race you’ll have nothing left except your billions of dollars.
Other assorted sign related sightings include a house with what I’m guessing is every democratic sign they could get their hands on. It’s a lot of signs and I recognize Perlmutter in there because of the aforementioned familiarity.
A different house has a giant (8’ by 5’ ish) Christine Jensen sign. She is the Republican running against Democrat Jessie Danielson for state senate district 20 (which I happen to live in). This is by far the biggest yard sign I see daily. It is possible that that is where Christine Jensen lives.
Later today I’m going to drive by the house that had the hand lettered, “Vote for an American,” sign up in 2012. I am anticipating some MAGA goodness. Finger crossed.
Finally, all these signs are in Jefferson County. I have seen zero signs in the part of my drive in Boulder County. I’m primarily in rural parts of Boulder County but I do go through a couple of miles of residential east Boulder at the end of my commute. Not a single sign, but it’s still early days.
I’ll update this thread should any interesting developments occur in signs in Lance’s neighborhood news. In the meantime, I’d love to hear about your current sign experiences. For real.
