Large political signs disrespect Vermont tradition

GUILFORD — For generations Vermont has banned billboards. For us and for visitors to Vermont from other states and around the world, the lack of billboards sets the tone of our beautiful rural state and its quiet countryside.

I am concerned that this tradition is threatened.

Large political signs have been put up around Vernon and Guilford. I don't know what the limits are for a sign to be banned, but these very nicely designed signs have, in my opinion, gone beyond the limit. The ignorance and disrespect they show for our Vermont traditions concerns me.

What is to stop other political billboards from going up around the state?
