Milwaukee - On Friday, Susan M. Edman, Executive Director for the City of Milwaukee Election Commission confirmed that candidates running for public office can't put up or have their campaign signs displayed at private properties or public places before December 1st. Candidates or people posting an election campaign sign before December would be in violation of election rules.
Several signs for potential candidate José Pérez, who intends to run in the Aldermanic 12th Distict were posted at the corner of the 1000 block of W. Washington St.
Pérez could not be reached for comment after several unsuccessful attempts to his campaign phone number.
Edman could not elaborate further or if a penalty was warranted when contacted on Friday about the Pérez election campaign sign violation other than it was a violation. She said, that she would look into it, since it hasn't happened in the pass.
When contacted, 12 District Alderman Jim Witkowiak, who is running for re-election said, he won't put up his campaign signs until Dec. 1st as required by the election commission.
Pérez is the only candidate that has registered his campaign committee to challenge Alderman Witkowiak in the 12th District.
