Political candidates always promise cleaner streets. We’d like to suggest they start immediately by cleaning up their own campaign collateral. This year’s hard-fought races put campaigns into overdrive, with partisan posters plastered along the roads and cluttering corners. Will the signs be removed with the same vigor and alacrity as they were installed? Or will they fade and fall over and disintegrate into roadside garbage?
You can bet we at The Roslyn News believe in freedom of speech, protected under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; after all, we’re journalists. But now the contest is over. Pick up after yourselves — or we’ll be calling you out in our next issue.
