Holyoke Bans Temporary Lawn Signs

The ACLU of Massachusetts is  challenging a new policy in Holyoke that bans temporary lawn signs  during the winter months and prohibits bumper stickers year-round.   

Under an ordinance amended by the City Council last month, anyone who  displays a temporary sign in their yard or on their vehicle, is subject  to fines.   

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of seven Holyoke  residents calling for an end to the policy.  

An ACLU spokeswoman says  courts across the nation, including the U.S. Supreme Court, have  affirmed that people have a right to express personal political views  through signs displayed on their property.
