For the second time in as many years, the City of York stands as a barrier between a charitable organization and the people it works to serve.

York mayor Kim Bracey has ordered 2011 City of York Humanitarian Award recipient Bobby Brunner to pay a $35 permit fee (along with all other applicable fees) in order to be able to pass out food and donated items to the needy during a planned Sept. 6th giveaway.

Mismanagement, Secret Meetings on Mayor’s Watch

In all the reports of drama and controversy surrounding the city’s Human Relations Commission, the media has failed to cover one critical bit of information.

Rebuttal to Henry Nixon's Twenty-Percent Tax Hike Proposal

York City councilman Henry Nixon Quotes Libertarian Manuel Gomez in Radical Opinion Piece
