Don't get mustard on that petition: Matt Erickson, who is gathering petition signatures on Wenatchee’s red-light cameras, is mixing politics and hot dogs this spring. Erickson has started a new business called Freedom Franks, in which he’ll be selling hot dogs and pop on downtown streets.
He’ll also have petition-signing on the side. Erickson is hoping to gather enough signatures from Wenatchee voters to put an initiative on the ballot that would ask voters if they want red-light cameras. Three cameras are set up now on Wenatchee streets.
