A flood of neon green signs on San Diego street signs and fixtures endorsing Nathan Fletcher for mayor may soon peter out.
There have been complaints that the signs were posted illegally in public rights-of-way and private property without permission.
The signs were commissioned by the San Diego Police Officer's Association, which has endorsed Fletcher.
A spokeswoman for the association said the group's outdoor advertising vendor has been notified and will remove all that violate the city's municipal code.
The mayoral candidate and assemblyman has not only gained local attention with his eye-catching signs. He is also the subject of nationwide recognition after he announced last week that he left the Republican Party to run as an independent candidate.
