Avella announced on Monday that he will introduce a bill in Albany to add the entire borough to the cease and desist list, which will allow all Queens residents to opt out of receiving unwanted real estate calls, mailings and ads.
Under the present state law, only certain neighborhoods deemed eligible by the state can qualify as cease and desist areas. Residents must show excessive distribution of real estate solicitations to qualify.
Avella’s bill will allow residents to add their addresses to the list, rather than by a neighborhood. The bill will also extend the active period from five to 10 years.

Oh, thank goodness! They are like vultures in my neighborhood!!
How about political ads, they are way more obnoxious.
Just like everything else Avella introduces, it won't pass constitutional muster.
Sorry Joe, I like most of what you say, but political ads are free speech, period — in fact they're the very free speech the framers were thinking of when they wrote the First Amendment, as opposed to say, porn and other stuff that's interpreted as legal under the amendment.
It's the same principal that rightly lets you blast the hell out of the pols here, on your blog and wherever else. Keep up the good work, man.
Give me a break. If you consider it junk mail, just throw it out.
I was not stating to ban political ads, by when they invade my personal space through mail or phone, I should have the choice to opt out.

It's an interesting point. Joe doesn't want to censor or stop politicians or groups from making political ads - he just wants to be able to stop receiving them. We have the ability to switch the TV channel, or the radio station, if we don't like the program or the commercial. Why don't we have the ability to similarly control what we receive by snail mail?

Examples of such?
