Floyd Bayne Signs Removed by VDOT

Floyd Bayne sign set in median strip is not allowed

I received an email yesterday from a reader asking me to investigate campaign signs erected in the median strip of Route 360 (Mechanicsville Tpk). The signs belong to 7th District candidate Floyd Bayne, who is running for Congress. These signs were reported to be in the Chickahominy Swamp section of the road.

The email said they had called the State Board of Elections and were sent to the Virginia Department of Transportation where they made a complaint.

I drove by there a few minutes ago and the sign is no longer there. So I called VDOT to find out what had happened.

I was told by a VDOT worker that a Supervisor had been dispatched to remove the sign, and perhaps some others. He said it is a lot more work to remove these signs when they try to cut grass or otherwise maintain the roadways, and signs are not to be placed on State property.

I am sure this was an effort on behalf of Mr. Bayne by an over enthusiastic supporter and the Bayne Campaign would never condone such actions.

Still, it would be a good idea if all candidates were to caution their workers and volunteers to only set signs on private property and, of course, with the property owner’s permission.

The VDOT worker said that those on private property are usually picked up and recycled or properly disposed of after an election, while the ones left illegally on right of ways and state property must be removed at taxpayer expense.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
