I don’t think we’ve ever — ever — put a political sign in our yard. Usually, Kish and I agree to disagree about individual candidates in significant races, so we don’t have a strong consensus view that would support a bold move like a yard sign. (Of course, the fact that we live on a cul-de-sac that doesn’t get through traffic probably means that omission hasn’t made a significant difference in the results of any major political races.)
But when the people supporting the fire department and EMS issue asked if we would put a sign out in support of those essential municipal services, it was a no-brainer. Kish and I might disagree on some things, but supporting the Fire Department and emergency medical services aren’t on that list.
