To the editor:

Brookhaven’s City Council has a vendetta going with the Pink Pony. The club has been operating in an isolated area for more than 20 years with no vice violations to date; it employs 300 or so people, and contributes about $455,000 to our tax revenues. Yet our City Council is dead set on spending whatever it takes to shut it down.

What is the motive? In informal polls I have found not one person who favors the new city spending $200,000 (and probably more) on battling this.

What is the motive behind this fight? If it is personal for one or two individuals on the council, then maybe they ought to realize they are not representing their constituency, and they should pay for the lawsuit. I sure don’t want to do it.
