Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Not everyone is on the same playing field. Trucks pay not RE taxes, and doubt whether they pay local food sales taxes or income taxes. It might be quality food, but not fair to someone that has thousands invested in buildings and must comply with all tax requirements. Put yourself in the shoes of a restaurateur, and see if it is fair.


    Would love to see the food trucks. If properly regulated, they will not hurt the local restaurants. Frank, are you against the Italian fest, Horseradish fest, SS Peter and Paul picnic, Rotary orange sales, Kiwanis orange sales, and Lions tootsie pop sales? They all take away from local businesses, but have no real impact on lost sales. How about little Chloe, the cupcake girl in Troy? If your looking for unfairness, how about the bars and restaurants getting TIF money(tax supported subsidies), versus the bars and restaurants getting nothing. Now, that is unfair.


    You're right, Frank, it's not a level playing field. I have never been to a food truck that has offered me AC, heat, or a place to sit.
