Zuber Removes Election Signs Ahead of Runoff

Zilka said some residents aren't aware there is a runoff election.

Although the race for will continue through Dec. 6, one of the two candidates in the run-off election has said he will not be putting out yard signs.

With none of the three mayoral candidates earning a majority of the votes, per city charter the two highest vote getters, Greg Zilka and K.C. Zuber, will face off in the run off election.

Zuber announced this week he has removed his “Re-elect Zuber” signs from the city. He said the decision was to “honor the Thanksgiving holiday” by taking them down.

“It’s important to honor our holidays and not politicize,” Zuber said. “We have many visitors to Avon Lake during the holidays and I decided to take down my ‘reelect Mayor Zuber’ signs to help show the best of Avon Lake to our visitors.”

Legally, candidates are permitted to put yard signs up 30 days before an election, which overlapped with the Nov. 8 election. As a result, signs did not have to come down after the Nov. 8 election.

 Zilka said his signs will remain up until the election.

 “I really don’t have a comment on it,” Zilka said. “The signs are up legally.”

 Zilka said some of his signs came down after the Nov. 8 election.

 “Some people do not realize there is still another election and have taken them down,” he said.  

Zuber will replace the lawn signs after Thanksgiving.

So having signs up that remind people that there is a mayoral runoff election makes the city look bad to visitors? Typical Zuber logic. A city of the caliber of Avon Lake deserves to be represented by a logical, competent professional, not this buffoon. Hopefully the 60% that voted against the status quo the first time show up and vote him out in the runoff.

Right Choice ... great pic of campaign sign clutter. Can you give me that address in Avon Lake? I have not seen it. Maybe that is because it is in Seattle Washington. Zuber's "respect for the holidays" sign removal reminds me of when McCain suspended his campaign in September 2008 to run back to Washington and deal with the financial crisis. Illogical, hysterical, incompetent grandstanding. Again, typical Zuber.

Is the picture staged? Looks like it to me. The citizens of Avon Lake can be "thankful" that Greg Zilka chose to run for mayor.
