City Council Members Fighting for Their Right to Junk Food


As the soda ban debate rages in the city council and elsewhere, some council members are making a stand for their right to eat junk food. As DNAinfo reports, at last night’s Health Department budget meeting, Health Commissioner Thomas Farley sipped from a 32-ounce styrofoam cup he later insisted didn’t contain soda (okaaaay, what was in it then?), while others exercised their rights and jaws with bags of Fritos and Cheetos. Those rebels. [DNAinfo]
