It is not often we can add a hero to our pantheon of heroes who, with humor and grace, have tweaked the noses of bureaucrats busily plying their brand of idiocy.
A city code enforcer sent Jay Simmons a letter. It said his temporary 4×8 “Bronson for Mayor” sign on his house was too big and needed to come down. The sign, the city guy said, could be no larger than 6 square feet.
Simmons, a retired police cop, cut the sign in half, trimmed here and there and rehung it. It complies with the code enforcer’s order – which apparently was wrong to begin with.
Temporary political signs, it turns out, are exempt from local sign regulations. You can read the whole story here.
Our hats are off the Mr. Simmons.
