Selectman, business leader push back against teen’s balloon ban proposal – USAPosted on August 31, 2018 by DrRossH in Balloons
“My opinions on this are very strong. … I have a real problem with banning individual items for sale,” a local businessman said.. Maine news, sports, politics, election results, and obituaries from the Bangor Daily News.
Town committees and organizations have already responded to Jones’ education on the dangers of balloons, and have stopped using them during celebrations. May Day organizers replaced balloons with streamers, and both the Kennebunk Police Department and the Kennebunk-Kennebunkport-Arundel Chamber of Commerce have stopped using balloons during recent outdoor events.
Good luck to Will Jones and we hope he can get his goal approved. The 2 balloon sellers in his town say banning is not the right way to go, but why should we let their profits overrule our natural beaches and outdoors which is worth a lot more to the community than those two businesses personal profits.
