Wether this is an appropriate development for the site or not is not important. I posted this story in the Community and Economic Development Forum because the perception of the development climate can have an influence on what gets built on the ground.Originally posted by My Way News
I find it interesting that a state official stated "So far, the state has done nothing about the billboard, and it's unclear whether it could. "At some point, we'll have to consider action against him," Campbell said, implying a potential legal fight."
I don't normally stand with the developers on issues, but what kind of environment is he working in when a state official trys to suppress free speech? The state proffering a threat of legal action for against an individual speaking one's mind is exactly why the laws against SLAP suits were passed. These laws provide some protection to individuals who have an unpopular opinion and who are operating within the law. To the government officials of New Jersey I say; He may just have a point. You might be overstepping your authority. Please don't sue me!"
