My take on this article is that an email exchange was posted so we could all see how the question of appropriate campaigning was not answered by the city clerks office. This raises the question of whether the clerk is really in a position to enforce the rules, and therefore the effect is to have no rules. The comments about pettiness are valid if this was a "look-this guy is out putting signs up during office hours". If it was "hey i would like to know if this is permitted or not" then these questions deserve an answer. I suspect the city clerk was trying to explain why he cannot answer the question, but it reads like a cover up for the incumbent. All the comments about incumbent advantage and voter disengagement raise very good, but I think separate issues than the one this article was aiming at.
