Recent legislation introduced by Manhattan Councilman Dan Garodnick to limit the number of food trucks and establish “food truck zones” is disappointing to thousands of hungry New Yorkers.
The owners and operators of food trucks and carts are role models to emulate. They have all assisted our community, which faces an 8 percent unemployment rate. They also collectively provide several thousand jobs for both direct employees and suppliers. All pay taxes and are our neighbors.
The free enterprise system made our nation great. Economic growth and the creation of wealth comes from these brave entrepreneurs without the assistance of "stimulus" federal taxpayer dollars
