Nicolas Daoust  will only erect election signs on private property

Mayor Leroux  made an announcement on August 29th, 2018 in regards to repeal a by-law on election signs, where it is forbidden to erect  election signs on public property within the Township of Russell . His decision was made considering that a candidate would commence legal action against the Municipality and the United Counties in the hopes to enable him to display his signs on public property.

Daoust states: “ I respect the mayor’s decision despite my support of the by-law. Election signs, in my opinion, are for voters to express their support for a candidate rather than allowing  candidates to display as many signs as possible on public property. Many residents have expressed their appreciation for this by-law and it’s unfortunate that it will be repealed for saving our tax dollars from potential legal costs. That being said, I agree with mayor’s decision but as a candidate I will only be erecting my signs on private property and I encourage other candidates to do the same.”
