Councilman Jim Kenney vowed to continue to fight for a plastic bag ban today, after his plastic bag legislation failed in City Council.
An agitated Kenney accused Jeff Brown, owner of 11 Shoprite stores in the city, of lobbying Council members to oppose the ban, which failed 6-10. Kenney called on environmentally conscious residents to boycott Shoprite stores.
