Political Sign ‘A Slap in the Face’

A “Private Property No Trespassing” sign fails to deter a city official from erecting without permission a large sign in the yard of an Anderson resident.

Someone from Anderson Mayor Kevin Smith’s reelection campaign had erected a sign measuring 8 feet wide by 4 feet tall in Walser’s yard without permission. Walser pointed to his weathered “No Trespassing” sign in plain view and visible to anyone entering his property. He said he placed the sign there last year to discourage gang members from loitering while he is away from home.
