John Bonsey started this petition to Senator Lindsey Graham

This proposed ordinance of the gas leaf blower ban would have an impact on landscape maintenance business owners and employees. Especially the middle class and low income in Yountville, CA. This would hurt businesses financially by costing them $100’s and even $1000’s of dollars for battery operated blowers which in turn will slow down jobs and increase rates for homeowners. This is not only a financial burden for business owners but also creates disharmony in the community. If this ordinance goes into effect it will spread to other cities, counties and even various states and will weaken the landscape maintenance industry. The hard working people that are trying to provide for their families should have a right to choose the best and most efficient tools for both residential or commercial jobs. Battery powered equipment is far less powerful for moving debri and grossly insufficient on large properties. They are inadequate for blowing wet leaves during the rainy season. An ordinance like this would cause undue stress and anxiety for the working class in this particular field and be an economic injustice!
