County seal, Trump sticker OK to be on official’s vehicle

July 11, 2016

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — Despite some residents’ concern, attorneys say it is legal for a Yavapai County elected official to display both the county seal and political bumper stickers on his personal vehicle.

The Daily Courier reports (http://bit.ly/29HRDWT) Yavapai County Board of Supervisors member Craig Brown has been seen around the county a bumper sticker supporting presidential candidate Donald Trump on the back and a county seal on the door.

Some Yavapai residents questioned if that was legal.

Board of Supervisors attorney Jack Fields says Brown is legally in the clear.

Brown says the First Amendment protects his right to display bumper stickers and added that concerned residents must not be Trump supporters since they didn’t balk at his stickers supporting Vietnam War veterans or other causes.
