Marion County has allowed a Portland-area skinhead group to adopt a rural Salem road as part of a volunteer litter clean-up program.
The signs proclaiming that Sunnyview Road NE between Cordon Road and 82nd Avenue is sponsored by the American Nazi Party NSM were installed Monday.
County officials say they were legally advised that excluding the organization would violate a constitutional right to free speech. Their choices, they said, were: allow the group to join the program, remove all of the signs from the program or refuse the group and risk a lawsuit.
A pair of signs proclaiming that the American Nazi Party has adopted a road in rural Salem are gone.
Marion County commissioners have not changed their stance on allowing the group to participate in a volunteer litter cleanup program, but the signs were vandalized this week and won’t be replaced unless Nazi party members pay to have the county install new ones.
