Question regarding use of The Woodlands Township logo in campaign materials.
A question has been raised about the use of The Woodlands Township logo in campaign materials for individuals seeking election to the Board of Directors. This matter was discussed with legal counsel and the following response was provided to the requesting party.

The Township election is a singularly important Township event, and it is the foremost duty of the Township to conduct the election fairly and impartially. The use of the Township logo in connection with a candidate’s campaign for election has potential for abuse, such as campaign correspondence, signage or a website of a candidate or supporter which appears to be on the letterhead of the Township or to carry some explicit or implicit endorsement by the Township of a candidate. Monitoring the proper use of the logo by a candidate or the candidate’s supporters would involve several difficult and costly tasks, including preparation of detailed rules and regulations relating to improper usage, followed by the chore of enforcing them.

Under the circumstances, the Township does not believe it is in the public interest, and cannot give consent, to the use of its logo by a candidate or a candidate's supporters or campaign in an election for a Township office.
