To the Editor:
The undersigned wish to add their voices to the protest against the Town of Woodbury giving up control over signs in town. We feel this is an unwise move, opening the door to a proliferation of signs, huge and small. To our mind, this is not a freedom of speech question, since nobody’s freedom to say on the signs whatever they wished was ever curtailed.
We need to differentiate between size and content. The Town cannot control content, but size is rightfully regulated by our statutes, to which we all agreed by vote. If you feel your rights have been abridged, because you want to say more on a sign than its size permits, then you should realize that anything wordier than ten words belongs on the OpEd page, and our newspapers have been very willing to print our letters.
So to our mind there is no lack of freedom of speech, or opportunity to speak up, in the town of Woodbury.
Leonore Templeton & Jean Fuller, Woodbury
