City tries to bankrupt business with parking ticket debt that wasn’t even theirs
This is what arbitrary bureaucratic tyranny looks like.
David Petrich owns the Farm Boat, a floating farmers market in Seattle. He faced losing this business when the City of Seattle came after him for $8,000 in parking ticket debt that did not belong to him. The Freedom Foundation’s intern, Conner Edwards, stepped in to help Dave save this beloved enterprise. With our help, Dave was able to fight City Hall…and win.
Ardently devoted to the cause of human freedom, he has worked at the confluence of politics, activism, and public policy for more than a decade. He co-wrote a ten-part series of video shorts on economics, and has film credits as a researcher on 11 political documentaries, including Citizens United's notorious film on Hillary Clinton that became the subject of a landmark Supreme Court decision. He is the founder of several activist endeavors, including AnyStreet.org (now a part of Western Free Press) and Liberatchik.com. He is currently the managing editor of and principal contributor to WesternFreePress.com.
