A week ago, this photo hit Facebook and went viral.
As Troy Patch
explains, it shows now former Mayor of Troy Janice Daniels and her ally Minesh Baxi accompanying a Kroger employee who is disposing of some lawn signs urging yes on her recall. That was a mistake on multiple counts on her part. While the person who is actually disposing of the signs is an agent of the property owner, who is the person who actually has the right to remove campaign signs from the property, this photo makes it look like Daniels herself is getting rid of them. That makes her appear no better than the Plymouth Township Supervisor in this video
Township supervisor caught removing campaign signs
As the video quotes the Plymouth Township Clerk, only the property owner or the candidate (or an agent acting on their behalf) are allowed to remove the signs. That Daniels herself got involved indicated bad judgment.
The other thing wrong was that the signs probably went into the dumpster. Instead, they should have been recycled--in Troy! WXYZ has the good news.
Sign-A-Rama in Troy is offering to recycle any old campaign yard signs. All you have to do is drop them off.
Good. I have 14 lawn signs from this election, plus one from 2010, and only one of them will be used in two years. I know where I'm taking them.
Follow over the jump for the rest of Janice Daniels's week.
