I could care less who this Will Pruitt is or what he is running for--JUST don't go knocking on my door. If I wanted people to come knocking on my door be it for religion, politics or selling something I would have moved to a place that welcomed it.

I have some experience with him as well. The 30,000 plus voters in The Villages will hear what I thinik about this candidate when the time comes.


Jan:

Just curious:

Are you saying that nearly half of the village people are not Florida residents and that the other half all vote? Where did you get the 30K number of voters?

I'm sorry to see any of the discussions here becoming, shall I say, "agitated!"

I agree that freedom of speech should allow politicos the opportunity to come knock on my door, no matter how much I would be against it! Mind you, should any one try to do so, I'd ask them to get the h--- off my property, now!

I'm all for not allowing solicitation of any kind here. If we exempt politicians from that rule, then someone selling something, somewhere down the line, is going to get themselves exempted, as well, and the whole idea will be trashed. Bah, humbug!

I'm sorry, that was a typo. It should have been 70,000 plus.

In my opinion, they are already exempt. Who is going to stop them? Whose law are they breaking? Who would you call? What law enforcement authority is going to arrest them? There is absolutely no law against knocking on your door unless you have a "No Tresspassing" sign in your yard, but signs are not allowed in The Villages. The only thing you can do is tell them you are not interested and not to come back.

I thought the thread subject (double entant?) was door to door?
I would ask where the line gets drawn. Oh hello I am running for _?_?_?_? may I speak with you?

In the name of security, I don't want suit/shirt and tie to be an easy(er) admission for anybody.....there are any number of clubs here in TV that politicians who want/need a forum can ask to attend/speak at......MUCH more effectively.

Sign on my door would be No Soliciting...including politicians....

My $4.95....that was two cents adjusted for inflation and excess spending!!!

BTK ;D

Janet Tutt should not allow him to solicit in TV
until he can prove that our restictions
are unfair.

Per the Leesburg Daily whatever:

Villages safe for politicos
Candidate alleged he was shut out; no official response

Benjamin Roode

Tuesday, February 12, 2008


THE VILLAGES - A Republican candidate for Florida's 42nd House district says he's been allowed back in The Villages for door-to-door campaigning.

Candidate Will Pruitt said Villages attorney Steve Roy contacted his attorney, Michael Norvell of Leesburg, saying all political candidates were allowed to canvass door-to-door in The Villages, contrary to what Pruitt was told in recent weeks.

"I think this is nothing but a victory for the people," Pruitt said. "It just shows our constitution is as strong as it ever has been about the First Amendment and freedom of speech."

Officials from The Villages' deed compliance office called Pruitt several times to tell him he could not canvass up and down Villages streets, said Deed Compliance Director Nick Xenos. Deed restrictions for The Villages say "the developer reserves the right to prohibit or control all peddling, soliciting, selling, delivery and vehicular traffic within the subdivision."

Last week, Norvell sent a letter to Villages attorney Steve Roy asking whether Pruitt was allowed to go door-to-door in The Villages. The letter included a U.S. Supreme Court case they argued showed local governments couldn't bar political candidates from campaigning house-by-house.

Roy told Norvell the whole thing was a misunderstanding and that any politician can reach Villagers that way as long as they are actively campaigning, Norvell said.

There should not have been a question as to whether Pruitt or any politician can reach voters, Norvell said.

"There's no reason why the Supreme Court decision doesn't apply to The Villages," Norvell said.

Roy did not return phone messages left with his office. Village Center District Manager Janet Tutt said deed compliance was a developer-related issue and referred questions on the topic to Roy and Villages Developer Gary Morse. Villages spokesman Gary Lester did not return a message left with his office.

Xenos said Monday he did not know of any exemptions to the restrictions for political candidates and referred any clarification to Roy.

Monday, Pruitt said he planned on getting into The Villages as soon as possible to campaign again.

"I'm already beating the pavement," he said.

I LOVE the no solicitation rule here. It saves me a headache every week. If anyone knocks on my door to talk politics they had better beware.....Anything I want to know, I will find out and I don't want some jerk running for office disturbing me while I am loving life in the Villages.

Lived in central Virginia and had Mormons; Jehova Witnesses; con-artists selling magazines; political creeps; and every other creature knocking on the door. My husband made a sign for our door which read;

NO SOLICITING. DON'T EVEN KNOCK UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN INVITED. SIGNED, THE OWNER.

It did keep the numbers down but it didn't stop it all.

I hope the Villages enforces the no soliciting rule here because I certainly will!!!!

I am in complete agreement with billethkid on this one. I wish the Villages would please stand firm on the No Solicitors, including Politicians. As stated above, there are literally hundreds of clubs and forums for politicians to come to speak to the Village residents. I don't like it on the phone and I especially don't like it in person. Coming from the "windy" city where all the politicians were notoriously full of hot air, I've had my fill. I'm sure you all probably know this, but for those that don't, Chicago was nicknamed "the windy city" not for its weather for for its politicians. ENOUGH! STAY AWAY FROM MY DOOR! :verymad: lol

A new security system has been developed to discourage door to door solicitations of any kind. For details click this link.

I'm not sure about this one. I was driving by Chelsea's house the other day and there were 2 Jehovah Witnesses on her door steps. One was say, "C'mon lady, you win. We need to leave. We have places to go. Please, no more!" The other was saying something like, "Dammit Jacob, let's get out of here. I'm becoming a Mormon." Even the Avon lady offered to drop the catalog in the mail.


( :joke: it's a joke, Chelsea.)
