The City is in the process of installing 500 “kiosks” throughout our neighborhoods.  They are enormous, three-sided stand-alone advertising objects and they destroy the character of our streetscapes and block various viewing angles.

As City Attorney, Noel will advise the 15 City Councilmembers on the best ways to legally fight electronic billboards, pillars, kiosks, supergraphics, and other advertising blight, and Noel will also make sure that the City’s laws are being followed by the billboard companies.

One of the reasons Noel is running for City Attorney is to stop the wallpapering of our neighborhoods with all of this visual noise, before it’s too late.

Expect ONE HUNDRED of these to be installed RIGHT AFTER the election. The PILLARS are 6 ft wide & 15 -18 ft tall. They’re basically monstrous cylindrical billboards permanently bolted into the sidewalks. There are currently no pillars in Los Angeles, the only other known California city that has them is San Francisco. These pillars will dominate our streetscapes and destroy the character of our neighborhoods.

Noel STRONGLY OPPOSES Advertising Blight, including PILLARS, Supergraphics, Electronic Billboards, and Illegal Billboards!
