The ACLU of Pennsylvania wants Robinson Township to suspend an ordinance it says violates residents’ First Amendment rights by regulating political signs on private and, especially, public property.

In a letter dated Wednesday, the group told the township it believes Chapter 226 of Robinson Township’s ordinance causes “irreparable harm” by curtailing “political expression and does so immediately before an election.” The ACLU states in the letter that if the township does not respond by noon Friday it will proceed with “necessary legal action.”

Robinson had not yet received the letter, township manager Jeffrey Silka said Wednesday night.
