Police in Brighton are trying to find out whoever placed three stickers promoting white supremacist groups.

One sticker was found at the town hall, the other two on private property including a restaurant, in the 12 Corners area.

Town Supervisor Bill Moehle says this kind of material is hurtful to many people in his town.  

“It, of course, does not reflect who Brighton is as a community. (In) Brighton, we celebrate our diversity, it is important to who we are, when this happens we push back. Hate is simply not acceptable in this way,” Moehle told WXXI News.

Brighton Police say they want to talk to whoever posted the stickers, to get them to stop.

There’s no specific word what , if any charges, might be filed if they can find whoever is responsible.

Two years ago, flyers promoting white nationalist groups were found in driveways in Pittsford and Brighton, but Moehle says it’s not believed the two incidents are related.
