We tell them to campaign in the free speech area. It is really not a problem 
and I can tell you Chapel Hell/ Carrboro is very active in the politics. The 
free speech area is free and in the last presidential election the Kerry 
folks sold there yard signs. We and the town would have a problem with bake 
sales because we have bakers in our market and there are health regs. as 
well to consider. The free speech area is outside the market area. We have 
had folks who put flyers on cars which is also outside the market area.
