Businessman threatens action against Jackson for sign policy

A businessman threatened with legal action for having cardboard signs outside his business says Jackson’s sign laws are not being fairly enforced.

Albert Wilson says that the proof is in all the political signs stapled to utility poles and abandoned buildings, months after the last election.

Political signs are supposed to be removed 15 days after an election.

Wilson says elected officials should obey the law.

He ran for the City Council, finishing sixth of 11 candidates. His chief complaint is that the winner’s signs are still all over the ward.

Councilwoman LaRita Cooper-Stokes says there’s no comparison because her signs are paper.

Wilson said his signs were the size of typical campaign signs, and promoted a summer camp — not his business.
