Millcreek Township, PA Supervisor Richard Figaski is calling for his two colleagues to rescind a policy that bans political and social-cause petition drives on township property. Attorney Gery Nietupski said in a letter to Supervisors Brian McGrath and Joseph Kujawa that the policy adopted Tuesday is unconstitutional because it violates free-speech protections on public property.
