A letter to the editor from the Times Ledger:
Mayor can't censor Juniper Park rallies
Whatever one may make of the sign depicted in the newspaper photograph, it is inappropriate and unlawful for the city to be demanding that the association censor signs or other expression at rallies it sponsors. As you presumably know, signs and other messages at political rallies are fully protected by the United States and New York Constitutions, and the city has no power or right to suppress messages to which it objects.
We call on you to rescind your demands and to meet with the association without imposing any conditions relating to public rallies. To the extent you are interested in discussing this matter, we are prepared to meet with you. Otherwise, we look forward to receiving a written response.
Associate Legal Director
New York Civil Liberties Union
We'll see if CAU responds or shows up at next week's meeting of the civic.
