Judge Will Rule On Supersized Anti-Obama Signs

View Comments

KENT COUNTY (AP) - A West Michigan man who expresses his political opinions on large trailers awaits a judge’s ruling on whether the supersized signs violate a local ordinance.

Vern Verduin appeared in a Kent County district court Friday to defend his messages on two trailers parked in his Gaines Township field.

They read “Obama’s Mission Accomplished: 8% unemployment, 16 trillion debt” and “Marxism/Socialism (equals) Poverty & Hunger.”

The Township attorney told the judge that the ordinance limits political signs to 20 square feet — even if it were to read “I love America.”

The judge will issue a decision in about 10 days.
