Hey, what’s that new billboard up there by the Second Street* overpass?
I toss my camera to my backseat photographer, and she captures Aberdeen’s first political billboard of 2016:
South Dakota Farmers Union got this billboard up for its independent redistricting proposal on Monday, just in time to exhort Brown County Fairgoers to vote for fair elections. Nice tie-in, Team T! And check out those three Ts, progressing across the board in blue. That’s a fun little bit of design, following the perspective lines of passing drivers.
Aberdeen unconstitutionally prohibits political yard signs until September 9. Until then, we’ll have to look to higher ground for political messages.
*Time Warp Correction 2016.08.22 16:36 CDT: The original version of this post referred to the 281 overpass. Second Street through northern Aberdeen used to be U.S. Highway 281, but the bypass west of town now bears that official designation.
