Aggressive Tactics Allowed on Federal Grounds?

Letters / Peninsula Clarion / October 8, 2006

On Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Soldotna Post Office, the public was repeatedly approached by a group soliciting voters' signatures for an anti-hunting ballot initiative. "Save the Grizzly" rang out each time a person entered or exited the post office.

I asked the attendant at the counter if they were aware of this activity, or whether the other viewpoint would be given the same opportunity and was told that the postmaster had authorized it, and that she would be in on Monday.

On Monday morning, the postmaster verified to me that she had authorized the group to set up near the post office entrances, starting on Friday. She then asked them not to return on Saturday because of the aggressive tactics they had used, blocking the entrances in pursuit of voters, but they returned anyway.

Regardless of the political issue, I have to wonder, is the solicitation of voters for a ballot initiative and appropriate and unbiased use of federal facility?
