'Red Light' Licenses up for Renewal: Citizen's Groups Petition Mayor's Office is an article on the Liberty Tree written by Thomas Shaw and published on March 1, 2001. The article is about Mayor Miles O'Donovan renewing the license for the Red Light District.
The five-yearly review of 'Red Light' licenses will be due at the end of the month. Citizen's groups have already started petitioning the Mayor's Office in an attempt to revamp the city's aging Red Light District. In recent months, Liberty's Red Light District, which hitherto had been the best adult entertainment center for miles around, has come under threat. Other red light districts with new facilities have begun to steal away Liberty's males, while the strength of the dollar has made Liberty susceptible to the powerful, and deregulated red light districts overseas, including Amsterdam, Bangkok and Baghdad. The Mayor, speaking exclusively to Liberty Tree promised, "Our Red Light District will be amongst the best, most vibrant, and immoral on earth by 2003." Way to go, Liberty City!
