Favor of paying a fee - oh I dont think so. What I do is my business and no one elses - you start a business here because of what you do and no one else is doing it. Why would I want anyone else doing it? Do you want to see more open spots in town? You may - I am tired of this ring leader!! ELECTION DAY IS COMING!!

Boxer, The biggest issue is Elzer only has one other vote, the rest aren't siding with him. Biggest problem with this is the fee. Cohen is just questioning and it does not mean the other 3 aren't siding with him, he's just doing the talking. Yes, I said other 3, Tyger, Beagle and Figley, along with Cohen himself. Never count on Wissner, she is Elzer's yes voter, you know, the Chamber President and VP!

What I don't get is why is Cohen always the only one carrying the weight against Elzer? Doesn't anyone else have a voice to help back this guy up? Or has Elzer just got the rest of them scared? You would think a few business owners would show up, voice an opinion. These Democrat liberals like Elzer, who only see government as a way to tax and control every aspect of your life, will have their way unless more step forward. More forms, more fees, more city hall in your pocket. That's the liberal way. Cradle to grave, there will be a form and a fee for everything you want to do.

One would wonder, if he himself, would comply? Then again, this is characteristic of his mentality of costing people or the town revenue with legislation like this. So, it's done other places, well, those other places are prosperous and growing. I had said before, the best that could happen is he gets voted out. That removes him, his "yes" voters and his puppet voice at meetings. The town does not need tattoo shops, gypsies, ghostbusters or junk stores. And, would those stores pay his "fees"? The town needs hardcore retail and manufacturing, something his chamber has yet to produce. I'm sorry, the fair was excellent, a great show of what we have to offer, but that does not pay resident's bills or keep them employed here.

Elzer claims that business owners are in favor of this. How can that be true? He claims business owner's WANT to pay an annual fee and file an annual report form and get licensed every year just to stay open. And pay a fine and lose their license if they don't. Give me a break. Who in their right mind wants that? I cannot imagine EP businesses want to be forced to buy a license every year just to stay open. I don't see the point of this. What does it accomplish? This is like the old protection rackets. More "Big Brother" interference. Once it starts, there's no end to it.
