  • Candidate claims sign ordinance hampers chances
    2/22/2018 Hamilton County Commissioners have hamstringed a county council candidate by prohibiting political signs to be placed on road and street right of ways.
    Rick Sharp, Carmel, a candidate for Hamilton County Council District 4, makes the claim in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Superior Court.
    Sharp maintains an ordinance prohibiting signs in right of ways, adopted Feb. 12, was passed to benefit candidates, who have greater name recognition and are favored by the county commissioners.
    “I believe it was done in an attempt to hold down lesser financed candidates in favor of other candidates who are better financed, and favored by the commissioners,” Sharp said.
    The rule attaches a $500 fine for placing signs along county road right of ways. It is not limited to political signs.
    “For him to claim that is laughable,” said Hamilton County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt. “This was a public safety issue because signs have become a distraction for drivers.”

    Approximately 8,700 students, 575 teams of up to 20 students each will compete.
