Diamondhead POA will allow campaign signs, for now

DIAMONDHEAD, MS (WLOX) - Campaign signs can go up in Diamondhead, at least for now. The Diamondhead Property Owners Association has voluntarily agreed to allow campaign signs in yards and door-to-door candidate solicitation between now and the June 4 General Election.

The decision is spelled out in a signed court order which followed a lawsuit filed against the POA by the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU is challenging the Diamondhead POA rules that prohibit yard signs and door-to-door solicitation.

Richard Tubertini, attorney for the Diamondhead POA, told WLOX News the group agreed to the temporarily lift the bans for the remainder of the election cycle, but looks forward to a court hearing later this year to defend the POA rules against the ACLU lawsuit.
