Letter: Beggars be gone
Re “City may curtail begging” (Monitor front page, Jan. 22)
I could not agree more with all those who have strongly expressed their support of a proposed bill banning begging within the Concord city limits. This law would help protect us from having to look at the faces of the poor, homeless people who live here. We would be freed from having to be inconvenienced by having those annoying children ask us to buy their cookies or to support their local athletic teams. We would no longer have to be pestered by those greedy non-profits asking us to support their artistic endeavors. Best of all, we would no longer have to put up with all those lazy lobbyists and politicians who are constantly slinking around the State House asking for handouts to support their various corporate masters.
Yes, by all means, let’s do away with all types of begging. This would indeed make Concord a better place to live.
