Poll: Is it right or wrong to ban gun-control ads on buses?
Community Transit, the primary transit organization in Snohomish County, has said no to running ads from a gun-control group.
The transit organization, however, says the policy isn’t aimed at the group, Washington Cease Fire.
Community Transit’s board adopted the new policy May 2, saying it doesn’t want to give riders the idea that it’s behind any particular political position and doesn’t want to create any controversy over religious, social and political issues., according to the story in The Herald in Everett.
Cease Fire’s ads also were rejected by Pierce County transit.
Meanwhile, King County Metro is running Washington Cease Fire ads inside and outside its buses. See last week’s story by Seattle Times staff writer Brian Rosenthal.
What do you think? Should transit organizations ban political ads or ads that promote one side of an issue or the other? Vote in our poll.
