I’ve been talking to people at some metro Councils in SA eg. Mitcham, Marion, West Torrens. Staff are busy pulling down election posters that don’t comply with regulations. Fair enough I suppose. But it is a waste of ratepayers’ money
because these Councils (and probably most Councils) are not fining the candidates.
Leave the posters up the poles (as much as I hate them) and let SAPN (formerly ETSA) deal with them and fine the candidates.
At #Unley Council a more relaxed and commonsense approach is being taken. Importantly, ratepayers’ money is not being wasted.
But what really prompted this blog?
I heard from a source at Marion Council that they have seized 100s of posters from just one of the candidates. That candidate was told to bring a ute to the depot to collect them.
I was wondering why that candidate had so few posters up compared with others. Mum’s the word as to the identity of the candidate 😉
