MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Village Democrats said campaign signs for Republican Mayor Norman Rosenblum and Deputy Mayor Louis Santoro were posted around the village illegally. Republicans, however, said the signs aren't connected to their campaign.
The new red and white re-election signs posted on telephone and utility poles around the village Saturday violate Section 286-7 Exempt Signs Section M3 of the village code, said Randi Robinowitz, chair of the Village Democratic Party.
The village code states that "such signage shall be set back at least five feet from all street curb lines and shall not be located within public right of way."
George Mgrditchian, chair of the Village GOP and campaign manager for Mayor Norman Rosenblum and Trustee Louis Santoro, said they are not responsible for those signs.
"All of our signs have our names on the bottom saying who paid for it, these signs don't even have who paid for these signs," Mgrditchian said. "As far as we're concerned, we're not endorsing it, it's not a part of our campaign, and has nothing to do with us."
Mgrditchian, who said he has not been able to find out who posted the signs, has advised Richard Slingerland, village manager, to either fine those responsible for the signs or tear them down.
Rosenblum, the incumbent, will be challenged by Trustee Toni Pergola Ryan Tuesday for the position of Mayor.
