Put up a campaign sign, win a bundle when they screw you.
Some Village employees are reportedly fearful of retribution and have therefore chosen not to put up lawn signs supporting a candidate, or candidates, in the upcoming municipal election.
Thankfully, the United States Supreme Court recently sided with a City of Paterson, NJ employee who did receive the short end of the stick for his involvement in a local Paterson election.
It’s a shame that a good number of Village employees are fearful of exercising their respective constitutional rights, but it’s good to know they can successfully bring personal lawsuits against any bastards who elicit political payback.
