School board candidate in favor of leaf blowers
When I rode by this sign the first couple of times, I thought it featured a drawing of a leaf blower. I thought that was odd. There is some controversy about leaf blowers -- they are noisy and annoying -- but I couldn't imagine how leaf blowers fit into school board politics. I eventually stopped to take a picture of the thing. I was disappointed to see that it was not a leaf blower at all, but a rolled up piece of paper (diploma, I'm guessing) and an apple. Much more appropriate symbols for a person running for school board. So what that the apple is blue -- it's no leaf blower.
