Editor's note: Below is a request sent in by a Peachtree Corners Patch reader with a request to all candidates. The opinion expressed by this reader is his own and not necessarily those of Peachtree Corners Patch. I would love for all candidates to communicate to their supporters several things. First, please stop placing signs in our yards and on the right of ways without permission. I have had to remove several expensive signs because nobody bothered to ask me before placing them in my yard. Second please remember to come back out next Wed, win or lose, to remove all those signs you’ve placed. I understand the need to get the word out about voting for their candidate, but when your team of supporters abuse or ignore the law or even …
