    3. Debt relief on all credit cards left behind the bar after midnight.

  1. Establish a municipally funded “Angling Arbitrator” to resolve online bitch fights and boat-ramp skirmishes during the March-August tournament season.

  3. All zeroes on bank statements and bar tabs to be replaced with green parrots.
