Yard Art and my fight for Freedom of Speech

This is now a battle for the first amendment, our most precious and important right as Americans. John Lant, Wilton town supervisor said art "isn't a good way to express anger" well pray do tell Me. supervisor, what do you think I should have done instead? in this political climate, when every major city has ongoing protests that occasionally flare up into riots, looting and chaos. I'm not angry Mr.supervisor I'm motivated, I'm trying to get sh*t done and all your underlings are offering is resistance. I promised my wife last year was the year of the workshop, and 2020 would be the year of the yard, we're over halfway through the year, pandemic came and went and zero guidance on how to progress forward. Nothing but more hurdles. And you dare say my frustration doesn't warrant a 7' piece of phallic art on my property?! After I win this first amendment case, I assure you I will do everything in my power to dethrone you in the next election, you don't represent me or others I've spoken to and your customer service is abysmal. facing a year in jail for a class A misdemeanor 245.11 section of NYS penal code. After the news story aired Friday at 4:30pm, Monday morning first thing code enforcement did was mail out not one or two, but seven appearance tickets for alleged property code violations. In clear and direct retaliation for my artistic protest and airing my grievances to the public, retaliation for first amendment protected conduct is an attempt to silence me, to shoot down any opposition to their authority, to quell someone of ordinary firmness. Unfortunately for them, my art and I are or extraordinary firmness, and we will not submit. I look forward to seeing you in court. old story: The town revoked my building permit for no good reason. They've allied themselves with the new neighbor of just a couple years to wage war against me and mine. I've laid claim and defended this land for 20 years! I've retaliated within the confines of the law. They've lashed out and doubled down. It's getting messy, supplies are running out, rations are low, morale is waning. I need a resupply and reinforcements, I need to unleash the shark.... There's way too much to go over in such a small text box. Get all the gory details over at WiltonWoody .com
