Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment. Those against view it as a tax that will hurt local businesses.

Here is a suggestion which would improve quality of life in Nassau County:
I understand political signs are a form of free speech and therefore are protected by the 1st Amendment but i think there are a number of viable options to better deal with them:
1) both parties agree not to do them and they invest the money elsewhere in their campaigns
2) both parties agree not to do them and instead donate that portion of their budget to causes they support thus making each election year a fundraiser for important issues as well as allowing the candidate to lay out their platform
3) and if somehow they still have some desire to put out signs make them into something that actually communicates information as opposed to just a name or party. There should also be a law that creates 3 day grace period after an election before your campaign receives fines for every sign left out on public property or which ends up as litter.
I think this local election proved that the number of signs up has no correlation to the level of support or the results of an election. Plus to put in in human terms each one of those signs was put there by someone. That was their time away from work, family, and more productive endeavors.
