Protect Vendor’s Rights

To the Editor:

Aren’t you glad that highly paid members can dedicate so much time to writing and passing laws aimed at one person? I guess New York City is otherwise in very good shape that there is nothing more important for these two “public servants” to do.

This proposed law is also 100 percent unenforceable. Are the police going to stake out every vending stand with a stopwatch, or just arrest and summons thousands of as a form of harassment, regardless of how long their stand was unattended?

Is there even one Council member who is not a paid flunky of the Business Improvement Districts and real estate industry? Are any not enemies of free speech?
