service to any person or party whatsoever, and no person shall be removed, reduced
in grade or salary, or otherwise prejudiced for refusing so to do. No public officer, whether elected or appointed, shall discharge, promote, demote
or in any manner change the official rank, employment or compensation of any person
under civil service, or promise or threaten so to do, for giving or withholding, or
neglecting to make any contribution of money, or service, or any other valuable thing,
for any political purpose.
If any person holding any office, place, position or employment subject to civil service,
actively participates in political activity in any primary or election in a municipality
where he is employed, it shall be deemed cause for removal.
