Bars and Restaurants and Legions STILL NEED HELP!
Tonight was a meeting, yet again of bar and restaurant and Legion owners who are STILL mad as HELL about the government tyranny called the Smoking Ban in Fort Wayne.
Pictured above are two Libertarian candidates for City Council--Jon Bartels in the foreground and Doug Horner to the back. Many Libertarians showed up to listen to the people whose lives are being destroyed by the current city councilmen from the traditional political parties and to report to them what we are doing to help. They are mad STILL.
The meeting, held at Piere's, was mainly led by a man from Indianapolis who represented the bars statewide and made promises of getting an amendment to the ban.
This wasn't unlike the meetings previously---lots of people yelling and two current city councilmen standing up there trying to say "we did the best we could." Credit given to Tom Didier who did say something needed to change about it.
I stood in front of the crowd on stage and told the people what WE have been doing since February to change the way government is run in the city of Fort Wayne and why WE ARE GOING TO CHANGE THE WAY SMALL BUSINESSES ARE TREATED!
1) WE SLATED 8 CANDIDATES for them to finally have on the ballot for City Council in Fort Wayne.
2) We post, we blog, we reachout to the community to let them know what is happening.
3) We list their businesses on our website and are trying to drive business BACK to the BARS to help keep them open because we have something to fight for-our freedom!
4) We are planning benefit concerts to GET THESE BARS BACK OPEN and STAY OPEN.
Did you know at least 5 bars have already closed? Did you know MORE ARE GOING TO???
What can YOU do?
Show up to the City Council Meeting tomorrow at 5:30 at the City/County building.
Show up to the next City Council meeting next Tuesday.
GO to the bars listed on our web page (www.allencountylp.org) and tell them you support their right to be open!
Come to the next meeting of the owners at Piere's on Wednesday July 25 at 7:00.
MOST OF ALL: SUPPORT THE CANDIDATES WE HAVE WHO ARE GOING TO CHANGE THE WAY GOVERNMENT WORKS FOR THE PEOPLE--volunteer, donate, learn that YOU HAVE CHOICES NOW!
**I am sure you won't hear this information on the "old news media"...they packed their cameras after a few minutes, came in and out and headed to find a couple of snippits for their 15 second newscasts.....If you want the whole story on the continuing saga check our blogs and websites...**
