    Alabama spends $16,000 changing governor signs on state lines

    Alabama will spend $16,000 to replace Bentley's name on welcome signs - Yellowhammer News

    What a waste of money. Nobody crossing state lines cares about who the governor is.

    Is it true that the signs are really old while the paint is much younger?

    Most of the time that definitely seems to be the case.

    I'm amazed there's no "Governor Jay Inslee" signs at our borders, considering how much of a narcissist our governor is

    I do agree that it is a waste of money, but replacing the signs would be correct/right in a technical and factual sense. They also shouldn't have put the governor's name on the sign in the first place, no matter how long the governor held the office.

    I'm sure your GOP Bryant would have changed the signs at your WA borders had he won last year, considering how long it's been since a member of your GOP has been governor of WA .

    I concur, I'm not saying leave them, I'm just saying take them down and recycle the metal.

    Yup, that is the logical thing to do, but I was just justifying Alabama's actions even though it is illogical.
