Tom Gilbert, District 4 candidate, is seriously violating the county ordinances with his signs. He even has them posted in front of schools (former Kittredge, Lakeside HS) on North Druid Hills/Briarcliff. That’s DCSD property!! He also has signs posted on other parcels of public property like the traffic light at Briarcliff and Briarlake Roads as shown above.
Please forward these photos to code enforcement as Gilbert should be fined for breaking the sign ordinance. If you see more, take a picture and send it to the blog at email@example.com
