Nilson: Logan City rife with ‘property rights infringement’

Ben Nilson says he is a candid, straight-forward student of the Constitution in the tradition of the founding fathers. He is also a candidate for Logan Municipal Council, one of 13 people seeking one of three open council seats.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wedneday, Nilson called the city’s general plan, “180 pages of property rights infringement.” He was asked about a property owner’s request for an electronic message display sign.”If it was bigger than his building and went past that fence line and it covered his neighbors windows, things like that, I think it would be a legitimate form of government to say you’ve got to get that back on your property,” Nilson said. “But for the government to say, ‘Oh, your sign has to be only x by x,’ or, ‘You’re sign can’t be too bright,’ things like that, its incomprehensible for me to consider that a proper role of government.”Nilson’s family owns the Altius Gymnastics Academy. He also works for Softmart, a business-to-business information technology business based in Philadelphia.
