What does preventing people from renting out their properties on AirBnB have even the vaguest hint of common sense?

I think voter turnout is typically very low in JC for non-mayor or federal elections, so not many people will show up. Those who do show up will probably remember the 10,000 flyers they received by mail telling them to vote "no" (funded by Air BNB). So I'm guessing the final vote will be like 500 - 300 in favor of the "no".

I think people should be able to do whatever they want with their OWN properties. Now that is common sense! If you rent a property, apartment, etc.. , and your landlord prohibits sub-leasing your space, then that is once again the landlord's decision as owner of the building. However, something like this is definitely not for the town's Government to decide. If you are sole owner of something, you should damn well be able to do what you wish with it! It is about time people (especially liberals) realize that we need to keep the Government out of our business, so our nation and wallets can actually grow! Thats capitalism, which is the opposite of socialism.

You can do it as a business if you comply with the regs.
It’s not a ban.

The regs are onerous enough to constitute a ban.

A main reason this should be crushed is because it's all about keeping NY money in NY. The main backers of the ban are the NY hotels and hotel unions. That's fine for NY, but NJ should not be cooperating with it. It's bringing a lot of business and tax money to JC.
