False start

More than 45 signs promoting Bradenton Beach Commissioner Ric Gatehouse in his campaign for the Nov. 5 election in Bradenton Beach were observed along Gulf Drive Sept. 14, as well as some signs advising the BeachHouse Restaurant, 200 Gulf Drive N., is open during construction. But the campaign signs apparently violate city code that only allows political signs in Bradenton Beach to be displayed 30 days prior to an election. Temporary signs, such as those displayed by the restaurant, require a permit, while political signs are exempt. Islander Photo: Bonner Joy

    According to Manatee County Supervisor of elections, in Bradenton Beach, you can have signs up 60 days before the election. In Holmes Beach it is 45 days. Only in Anna Maria is it 30 days.

      Try reading Bradenton Beach’s code on municode. Sec. 34-768, #12: Political signs are exempt from sign permits; however, they shall be subject to state law. Each parcel may display political signs 30 days prior to any election and shall be removed seven days after the election. — Bonner Joy
