This is an issue after every election! These signs are left everywhere with no clear intent by the"loser canindates"to clean them up,when not to long ago they championed causes like a cleaner city,political responsibility and cleaning things up. Way to be real politicians!

The "rodent" who reported this to Citizens Connect has this all wrong. Six inebriated Yuppies walking down the street ripped this sign off of the fence of the house shown in the picture. None of them could have walked a straight line if they had stopped drinking 2 hours earlier. They were coming from one of the upstanding drinking establishment on Broadway, at half time on Sunday night, when one asswipe decides to rip the sign down. They proceed down K Street and smash the sign against a John Connolly sign a few houses down. Then they throw it into this person's yard. I assume this person took the sign and placed it against the house from where it came.
These jerks give us Yuppies, who try to be good neighbors, a bad name.

The complaint simply said that there's a sign there that needs to be picked up. That's exactly what Citizen's Connect is supposed to be for: missed trash pickup, street light out, pothole, etc. Nobody accused the abutter, the homeowner, yuppies, townies, Conley supporters, the Illuminatti, or anybody else of any offense. The complaint didn't say, "Get CSI in here to find out who did this and drag him off to jail," it just requested a trash pickup.
Fer cryin' out loud.

with picking it up yourself and throwing it in the trash? Does the City have to do everything for it's citizens? That's the problem today, everyone thinks they need something for nothing.

To me, trash out on the street (not a gum wrapper or a beer can, but something too big pick up and fit in a city trash can) seems like exactly what Citizens' Connect was built to handle. What exactly is your objection to someone using the app to flag an item for pickup?

This is right up there with the whiner who is always filing reports about weeds and grass growing out of the sidewalk cracks!

This probably was a yuppie that reported it on the phone app. They come in here driving their BIG SUVs and god forbid they do anything to help their neighbors. We dont need our neighborhood gentrefried. We have been good all along.

Here we are, folks, at the precipice again: Will this discussion become another yuppie-vs-townie bashfest? Even the OFD-vs-DBC thing in Dorchester never approaches the depths of outrage we see in pretty much every Southie discussion ever.

with Conley's campaign staff instead. After all, why should the City be forced to pick up old campaign signs?

It's not a complaint, it's a request to pick up uncollected trash.

If you see an abandoned refrigerator on the street, do you call the sanitation department or do you call Maytag?

...give me your old signs and billboards (ie- 4' X 8's), let me know and I'll recycle them and paint them up into Bennett for Sheriff billboards. Just let me know. Thx

Many people reuse their signs. It saves a lot of money if they plan to run again. When we have had lawn signs before, we put our signs out on a designated day after the election so the campaign folks can pick them up.

That was my thought when I saw this - this was put out for such collection.
