What kind of srvice and eqipment do you expect for $2.40@mile?

Haitian Commish Monestime’s proposal is an attempt to appease and garner votes from the local taxi industry whose drivers are mainly Haitian. Too bad for the rest of us. Hopefully Gimenez will start exerting what authority he still has left to address this problem. I wish there were more like the Mayor on the dais. He seems to be the only one looking out for us– something I never thought I’d write about any kinda mayor in this local burg.
