Joe Hogsett Wants People to Beg For Their Rights

Indianapolis Mayor, Joe Hogsett, has declared that restaurants can only have seating outdoors. This may not be a huge problem for those restaurants with patios, or outdoor seating already in place. If you are a restaurant with no outdoor seating, then you’re going to have to jump through some hoops. Restaurants can apply to receive permission to set up outdoor seating at their own establishment, and pray the government allows it. Not only is there no science behind the decision, there are logistical nightmares that would occur with setting up exclusive outdoor seating. Not to mention that the Mayor is now picking winners and losers.

“As we have been discussing here for the past 4.5 years, Mayor Hogsett doesn’t listen. He has a staff of children who has no interest in listening… Everyone wants to think this is the same sleepy little town it was 35 years ago. It’s not. Mayor Hogsett actually thinks he can do things and there aren’t any repercussions.”
