This is an update to the April 27, 2018 posting. Spirit of Texas did not respond initially to LNO, however has now confirmedthey did NOT give permission; however the Landlord has decided to leave the impression the businesses support one political group (ProtectColleyville PAC) and has refused to allow others to post signage in front of the buildings.
An observation by Editor, Nelson Thibodeaux
Therefore, it is apparent that the bank is not the entity that allowed only Mogged signs to be place in front of their facility. One would think the bank would protest the obvious impression this has concerning their independent business. Appears a landlord is overstepping his bounds allowing “peaceful” occupation of a space leased by a tenant.
That comment got us to thinking about businesses, this week it was banks in Colleyville, and political signs. We called and/or sent an email with the following question to 7 banks in the city;
LocalNewsOnly.com has covered local news since 2000. As part of our coverage this year we have contacted commercial facilities, including banks, concerning their policy on allowing political signage at their locations.
The Options of response are 1.) We do not allow political signs. 2.) We allow political signs for any candidate in the city, 3.) We only allow political signs for particular candidates.
LNO will report on its findings on Wednesday of this week, therefore would like to have your response.
Out of the 7 banks contacted 5 reported they allowed no political signs, one said they would allow both candidates but at the time there were no signs and one, The Spirit of Texas Bank at Hwy 26 and Hall Johnson did not respond. We waited until 6 pm on Wednesday to post this article.
