At first, there were election signs all over the place. And
now, after Hurricane Sandy, you can’t go a block without seeing solicitation
lawn signs offering everything from floor tiling and excavation to sheet rock
specialists and painters.
These businesses seem to be printing up signs and
strategically placing them on every corner of every block. If you drive, or even walk, you will see
these lawn signs everywhere!
What gets me upset is that these businesses are getting free
advertising. Who gets free advertising
If they were a charity, I could understand. But they are
actually making money from our loss!
When most of us have to pay to put up signage, these
businesses are cheaply making signs and putting them out.
Don’t you think that they should pay the City of Long Beach
something for the advertisement? Our
city needs the money now more than ever to rebuild.
If they aren’t paying to put the signs up, then someone
should take them down. Don’t you think?
I mean, they aren’t giving us a free ride when they price
out the job in our homes so why should they get a free ride with free
