Maricopa County Community College District Litters Tempe With Political Signs

This year voters voted on Proposition 401 -- which was a huge bond requested by the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD). Although votes are still being taken, I predict this proposition will pass.

It was sad to see the MCCCD behave like rude politicians when they started littering our neighborhoods with political signs. In fact, in my neighborhood, the MCCCD was worse than most of the politicians. found five separate locations where "Vote Yes on Prop. 401" signs were placed in violation of Tempe's signage rules.

The northeast corner of Guadalupe and McClintock was littered with all kinds of politcal signs. These signs were legally placed; however, cannot figure out why the MCCCD needed to have three Prop. 401 signs visually spamming us.

The MCCCD's political sign litter proves that political signs attract real litter.

By the way, I have been an employee of the MCCCD since 1996 and I voted NO on Proposition 401 because of the way the MCCCD littered my hometown of Tempe.
