Well observed "Truthseeker." It is the powerful, wealthy restaurant owners that are bringing leverage to oust these trucks. Interesting that the food trucks are making some headway at the beaches and they are losing ground downtown. The food establishments that cater to the businesses~lawyers, law enforcement, bankers, insurance and the like~will lose their market share to the trucks due to the lower costs and probably better food. I sure want to see these food truck venders "win" their place to serve their food.

City Councilman Reggie Brown - Another CAREER POLITICIAN looking to make a name for himself. He'll succeed - as Public Enemy #1 in the world of free enterprise. Better check his campaign contribution reports to see who his contributors are. A wise and prudent consideration would be to examine thoroughly the domino effect of hobbling the Food Truck Industry. All the jobs dependent upon food trucks, supplies, maintenance, support and taxes. How deep will the negative impact be? Stop wasting Taxpayer money on frivolous legislation! This proposed Ordinance is a miscarriage of prudent lawmaking. Reggie, cancel it and get back to SERVING all of Duval County's taxpayers and voters - not special interests. Else, you may get cancelled in November

From the United States Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independant, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness" Its amazing how the Jacksonville Govt is trying to remove these rights from people that want to run a food truck. The city council should be on death row. They don't honor any rights of the people (except their friends)

Action News should do some specials on the regulations in place in Jacksonville code enforcement. People would be surprised by how many rights the council has taken away in years without telling people.

Obviously the food truck owners haven't lined as many politicians pockets as the restaurant owners. BEsides a politician has never seen anything that he or she didn't want to regulate.
