Bristol Borough Council is considering an ordinance that would prohibit politicians from holding rallies at veterans memorials.

The move comes less than a month after council candidate Eric Sokalski announced his campaign at the Bristol Borough Veterans Monument, the Bucks County Courier Times reports.

"It's a place for reflection, not protest," council President Ralph DiGuiseppe, who is running against Sokalski for the South Ward Council seat, told the paper.

 

Sokalski reportedly apologized for holding a rally to announce his candidacy at the monument when the issue was brought up at a council meeting this month.
