As a result, he pled not guilty to disorderly conduct this morning and in response to his December 4th banishment from university property, Mr. Young released the following statement;
"This is clearly a retaliatory action against me as a candidate for Mayor of Providence, because I have publicly stated my desire to tax Brown University property and to remove private police powers from Brown University security," he said in a statement in advance of the arraignment. "Brown University obviously has a vested interest in trying to stop me from becoming Mayor of Providence. They know, clearly, I will tax Brown University property and use the money to reduce rents and property taxes for the rest of the residents and voters in the city of Providence."
