Just over two weeks ago Marylanders took to the polls to have their say in who will represent them in government. One choice was David Trone for the 8th Congressional District. Today, I am calling on Trone to satisfy his obligation to the people he wanted to represent and clean up his signs! Trone spent what had to be thousands of dollars littering our roadsides with “Trone for Congress” signs. Now, more than two weeks later, these signs are becoming litter. Simply put, they are everywhere.

Trone and those who supported him need to pony up and clean up this terrible mess they have made. Other candidates, win or lose, have their signs cleaned up. As the grass grows taller and taller, these signs will gradually disappear along the roadside. They will be shredded by mowers or will learn to fly in the wind. Within a short time these signs will pollute our waterways. As time goes on these “Trone for Congress” signs will be tiny rafts floating down the Monocacy and the Potomac. I can’t wait until I see these signs in the Chesapeake while enjoying my summer beach excursion!

Trone ran for Congress because, as he claimed in his numerous television ads, he believes members of Congress should work to actually solve problems. It’s a good thing we Marylanders didn’t buy this; a man who can’t even clean up after himself certainly can’t be trusted to represent us and solve our problems.

Heck, I saw some from 2014 a month or two ago. Trone will get them down, let him know where they are.


I think a vast majority are not signs that Trone placed - rather they are signs placed by supporters on private property. The supporters need to remove them. He may not even know they are there.
