The Glen Rock Board of Education does not endorse any political candidate, "Cat Scratch Fever" rocker Ted Nugent included.

A borough resident snapped a photo of a “Ted Nugent for President” bumper sticker on a board of education-owned vehicle last month, according to a report by The Glen Rock Gazette.

Larry Shiels, who noticed the sticker in front of Hamilton Elementary School, told the paper he found it “offensive and inappropriate” that a school vehicle would display support for the prominent gun enthusiast.

The sticker has reportedly already been taken off the vehicle.

“The Board of Education believes that there is no place for any political agenda anywhere in our district,” BOE President Sheldon Hirschberg said, according to the report. “The administration had the inappropriate bumper sticker removed immediately.”

The famous rock musician, a vocal critic of the president and a staunch advocate of gun rights, told Detroit radio station WCSX last month that fans have been pushing him to aspire to public office.

“I have threatened to run for public office, because I have been prodded to do so, and pushed hard in Texas and other states, and here in Michigan,” he said.

“And I believe my sense of logic, my sense of common sense, my connection to people who are in the asset column of America. I believe that I would perform an enormous upgrade in returning to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and most important of all accountability.”
