Door to Door Ordinance?
« on: July 08, 2004, 08:45:38 AM »
Does the city have a door to door ordiance?

Last night our neighborhood was visited by a supposed member supporting the Democratic National Committee.

The person had no credentials, just a clip board, registration forms and a ziplock with cash.  This person was going door to door seeking new registered supporters /donations (asking for $50) for the DNC to help defeat the Bush Administration.

How is anyone to know this was legit?

Why are children still hussling candy, etc without adult  supervision?  How quickly everyone forgets the child who was taken and killed years ago in South Jersey.

There are numerous cities and towns that have enacted restrictions on door-to-door activities. This is a total and massive violation of our FIRST AMENDMENT rights of Freedom of Speech. People don't respect Freedom of Speech any more, since the definition has been broadened and weakened by allowing Freedom of "commercial" Speech in the form of billboards (which is bullshit as far as I'm concerned).

Our founding fathers were very intent on protecting freedom of political speech, freedom of personal speech, and freedom of association. Any restriction on door-to-door visitations would be a massive affront against all such rights.

What could be more philosophically consistent with Freedom of Speech than the right of a Democrat, Republican, or 3rd party representative to go door-to-door to promote their political party.

What about my rights and where's my protection for my family and property the time a Jehovah witness stuck his foot in my door and insisting I listen to him after I declined he's "message".  In a split second I had to question his actions and the safety of myself and my family. 

If door to door activities are not registered activities, should an issue occur, I have nothing to report to the police, city officials, etc. 

If I can sign up for a "Do Not Call" list with the state and federal government, I want to sign up for a "Do Not Pander" list in town.

The Hackensack Democratic Municipal Committee is trying to identify the individual(s) involved in the door to door activities.  If you have any information, please call me at home at (201) 488-4377.  Thanks.
