Comic: No More Politician Names On Welcome Road Signs

The latest comic is a letter I sent to my state representative and state senator in hopes that Ohio can do away with wasting tax money sticking the governor's and lieutenant governor's names on the welcome to Ohio highway signs (for background, read here).   Click on the picture to make it bigger:

It will be nice to drive into Ohio and just see a welcome to Ohio sign that didn't need to be updated every few years just to tell us who the governor is.  Especially with inflation lately, it's important to spend taxpayer money wisely and not waste it on useless, vanity stuff such as making and installing a bunch of metal signs that don't need to be made.  Since DeWine's name is up there already, it can be left up there until he leaves office, and then the signs can be replaced one last time (some may be overlays that we can simply take off and not replace--even better).  It would be nice if legislation were not needed to fix this issue, but the executive branch doesn't seem to be able to restrain itself here.  I mailed the letters on April 1st since the whole situation is comedic, but I hope they don't think it's just an April Fools' joke and actually do get rid of those dang signs.

For more cranky old man ranting, read the novel Fast Guy Slows Down!
