Susan Barr 7/27/21 12:02 PM In my 40+ years in business, it's never been easier to start and grow a business as long as government stops shutting it down. It's not up to government to choose winners and losers in this economy. That said, this ordinance is discriminatory against non-BIPOC business owners.
