It is a sure giveaway that the election season is quickly descending upon us; undoubtedly the foundation of every political campaign strategy from local school boards to the president of the United States.
This iconic exemplar of American politics? The ever-present candidate yard sign.
House District 65 hopeful Chris Sprowls is calling on friends and supporters to get an early start on this time of year for political signs.
And the Tarpon Springs Republican is making it easier than ever, with an online sign up form on www.chrissprowls.com.
Just click the link, fill in your information, and a “dedicated campaign team will be happy to deliver them to your home or business,” or come by the campaign office and pick one up.
“It only takes 30 seconds of your day,” says Sprowls, one of the rising stars of the state Republican Party. He is looking to unseat incumbent Democratic Rep. Carl “Z” Zimmermann in 2014.
When it comes to yard signs — the heart of retail politics — the more people, the merrier.
