The city council just gave hundreds of thousands of our dollars away to PBA interests, to pay for advertising campaigns to bring shoppers to downtown businesses. Fuck that! Our schools and social services are in crisis, and they're digging out $400,000 for an AD campaign to support PBA??? Not only that, but rumor has it the mayor and the city council are now considering a "tax overhaul" to give those poor little businessmen a break. We all know Vera is in their pockets, but this really stinks. How could she think for one minute these kinds of giveaways are appropriate? Especially when the rest of us just agreed to a tax hike to pay for needed services. Why shouldn't businesses be forced to pay their share??? They are NOT good neighbors. They're extortionists who have bought our city officials.
