RESTORE DEMOCRACY IN UTICA, NY lapel pin $5.00 (PUt007)
A 1 1/4" round pin. Shows Monkey Emperor at Mayor's Podium with legend "RESTORE DEMOCRACY IN UTICA, NY - LISTEN TO THE VOTE OF THE PEOPLE". Issued 12/01/2017. Only 99 pins were made with only 50 reserved for sale to the public.
While originally issued 12/2017 to protest the Utica Common Council decision to override term limits imposed by a citizens' referendum. the sticker remains valid as the Mayor and Council continue to turn a deaf ear to citizens' concerns and input on destroying a large section of downtown to build their dream of a new giant hospital instead of situating it on vacant land near the current hospital complex.
A companion sticker (2 1/2" size) was also issued. Each pin comes with one free sticker.
