Yo' Peekskillman...Even if she opened her doors folks didn't have obvious exposure to her shop, if she opened the doors the smoke from the vendor would have went straight into her shop....and like I said the way dude approached her he was out of order...

Peekskillman- another brave soul who resents when the truth is told about the City he must call home. I love these cowards who dish the dirt while hiding behind an anonymous screen name & I wonder what he could possibly be afraid of; after all he apparently has friends in high places who are giving him the lowdown. During the 7 years I had my business, I invested quite a bit of my savings and my time trying to do the impossible- running a profitable enterprise in a place where bureaucrats are only interested in the next big handout from Uncle Sam. Peekskillman says I shouldn't be allowed to express my opinions because I don't live there, have a business or pay taxes. Let's get something straight - whether I want to or not, I am still supporting the City- my state, federal and other taxes help pay for much of what is done there including infrastructure. Most of the dependent class doesn't pay income or property taxes in case the genius didn't realize it. I suggest that until Mr. Peekskill grows a set and reveals his ID, he has no business spouting off his inane opinions and theories in this forum. I give Leesther a lot of credit for her courage and outspokenness plus she always posts under her own name.

I agree only cowards sit behind anonymous posts.Passion is what it is all about. Assume you are a man since it posts Peekskillman show identity and be a real man!! See ya all Monday August 13th at City Hall 7:30 pm 2nd Floor. Need more signatures do not have to be a resident of Peekskill, no age requirement, just have to support our opposition.

Ms Villanova- are you now reduced to elementary school where one resorts to name calling when unable to debate on the facts? what's next, putting a whoppee cushion on my seat? if you would look back on many of your previous posts, I am supportive of many of your opinions; however, your constant detrimental spouting off is wearing a bit thin. I never called you names,but rather suported your right TO spout off. And since you have not denied receiving the $500 payout to shut your business last year, are you now one of the entitled ones who collects from the public trough?. Do the right thing and give the money back to the Festival Stick and stones, my dear sticks and stones
