News blackout looms

It saddens me to hear that The Union will not be allowed to print any news of the major issue in the upcoming November election for the next few months.

The reason, as reported in the April 4 issue of The Union, is that County Code Enforcement Director Steve Brown just won’t allow diverse opinions of NH 2020 to be displayed. On signs, in print, same difference.

As a supporter of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, however, I hope you continue practicing “freedom of the press” as staunchly as I support freedom of speech. My “No on NH 2020” sign will stay at the end of my driveway and the bumper sticker will stay on my car until we elect a new and representative Board of Supervisors in November.
