XENIA, OHIO: Following complaints, an Ohio county will remove welcome signs that credit the local Republican party and look like the state's road signs.
Greene County Engineer Robert Geyer says he realized from comments he got that the signs were a bad idea, so they're coming down.
The 10 signs say ''Welcome to Greene County'' and, in smaller print, ''Courtesy of The Greene County Republican Party.'' The signs that are green with white lettering are similar in style to those used by the Ohio Department of Transportation.
The Dayton Daily News reports both Democrats and Republicans were annoyed and complained to the newspaper and to Geyer.
Republican Sheriff Gene Fischer says he thinks GOP candidates would rather have money used for campaigns, not signs.
