I speak at the local City Commission meetings in Tallahassee,

Customer Question

I speak at the local City Commission meetings in Tallahassee, Fl. The things I speak about are things they don't want to here, because it is about wrong things they have said or done themselves. Last year they installed a "kill switch" to shut me down, as stated by one of the Commissioners. Recently, the Mayor interrupted me, during my allowed three minutes, to tell me what I can't say. I have never been disrespectful nor have I ever attacked the Commission. However, they have accused me of everything.
A group of 1st Amendment advocates came to a meeting and warned them that they were in violation of speakers' right to free speech. The Commission refuses to listen to the advocates advise.
I would like to know what recourse do I have against the Commission and where may I find help? I can be reached at:(###) ###-#### ***** for your help.
