In the “Drive-by ADA lawsuits” column by Matt Grocott dated Aug. 3 should everyone make aware of the unfair and outrageous ADA lawsuits filed by an uncompassionate lawyer. Due to the coronavirus situation this is  a very difficult time for small businesses struggling to stay open and serve their community. I am sure every small business tries their best to accommodate all their customers ... able and disabled.

And maybe the mayor of San Carlos can help these businesses with supporting action and not just talk.

Ms. Thiel - optimistic hope for the mayor of San Carlos to do something to help businesses, but as with her reply after being made aware of the issue, a bunch of lip service. I’m predicting more lip service in the future, but not a lot of help to businesses. We should also see if Ms. Parmer-Lohan is doing anything to lower increased crime rates, especially violent crime, in San Carlos as reported in March of this year. Maybe citing and releasing criminals isn’t such a great idea (to nobody’s surprise).
