There's a campaign sign around town:
I don't recall seeing many, if any, campaign posters that use the word "please".
On one hand, it seems polite. Nice. Friendly.
But on the other hand, and this is my dominant hand, it seems pleading. Needy. Sad.
For the love of God, elect me!
C'mon, please? Pleeeeze? Pleasepleasepleaseplease?
It's the only sign in town that pleads with us. There are many, and most either just say "Elect" or nothing at all.... just the person's name and office. I like this last one. I know the purpose of the signs are to suggest that I "Vote" for or "Elect" someone on Election Day. I doubt there is anyone who would see the yard sign:
and say "Hey, Commissioner Edwards lives there!"
So, don't look so needy, Todd. It's not cool.
*Hey, speaking of voting, the MIPA J-World site has a cute article about a very important election. Let your voice be heard!
