Restaurant owners from Mill Valley and all over Marin County threw their weight this week behind a Change.org petition crafted by Dustin Sullivan, owner of Guesthouse in Kentfield. In doing so, they sought a reconsideration of the current ban on outdoor dining for any region whose intensive care unit capacity has dipped below 15 percent during the current stay-at-home order and as COVID-19 case counts continue to climb statewide.
“I am writing to you on behalf of the employees who work for us; the employees who power our economy,” Sullivan wrote. “Employees whose children are going hungry during the holidays, many of whom will likely get evicted from their homes once federal eviction moratoriums are lifted. Employees that I am personally purchasing groceries for out of my own pocket. Employees for whom I am their only lifeline.”

As of Dec. 31, the petition has garnered more than 4,500 signatures.
