Government Shutdown: ‘Has Government Missed the Mark?’ Asks Fence Fabric Owner

Share Article

White House and Congressional leaders are devising a plan to cut billions of dollars from the federal budget. “It is surprising to me that we hear nothing about new revenue streams,” Jonathan Sidy of says. There is a possibility out there.

President Obama said that change will be about new ideas. Who is taking the lead here? Why have we not seen a commission on creative revenue generation?

“How and when are our representatives going to find new, short term revenue generating streams without long term sacrifice?” asks Sidy.

One of the biggest spenders of government dollars faces the biggest financial cuts. But they also have the greatest capacity to generate new revenue. “Schools”, Sidy suggests, “have a captive target market, wide exposure, and hundreds of millions of feet of advertising space that could be tapped tomorrow. How? Chain link fences.”

Schools are not alone. Ugly chain link surrounds our parks, beaches, government offices, parking lots, museums, and even special events. In many cases, money is being spent on ugly, tattered green cloth that serves no purpose. This untapped, printable space could be generating hundreds of millions in revenue for government and creating jobs and tax revenue here in the US.

“We are unique in that our product has the ability to raise revenue where it has never been raised before,” says Sidy. “This one concept gives advertisers who are ready to spend the money, a target to spend it on.”

This is a concept that can be used at the city, state, and federal level and with set controls in each location that allow for integrity in the placement and content. Revenues from this advertising can go to each of the schools or even the general fund of local cities and states.

When the economy turns around and a prosperous America starts generating tax dollars again, the program can be easily stopped, with no destruction to government ideals or physical property.

“As Americans it’s time to see more of the positive things that can come out of this mess,” says Sidy. “Fence Fabric, like so many other small businesses out there, is at the brink of destruction yet with the ideas and passion that can turn America around.”
