No there isn't. At least not in my mind. The government is made up of elected officials whether they be elected at the national level or the local level makes no difference. Any time a government official says they will work to have a business denied the necessary permits they need to operate based solely on the opinions of the CEO that is a clear violation of the First Amendment in my mind.
