I have been advertising on Craigslist as a handyman, I googled the term "Oregon Handyman Advertising" and came up with basically I am good except plumbing and electrical. I put in two terms into my ad, Irrigation Repair and Sprinkler Repair, According to the Contractors Control Board (landscaping) It is against the law to say those two words as an advertisement? My question is, is this a violation of free speech? I put this as both an ad and a Resume to attract potential employers. So Resumes online are illegal? I have seen people advertise for help needed that they need sprinkler repair, is that illegal?
With no warnings or Cease and desist, they told me I owe them a fine of 500.00. I really think this is unfair and I feel my free speech rights have been violated. If a group sues to advertise on public transportation that is controversial, why can't I advertise my services on craigslist?
