Scientologists agree to tame Ybor recruiters - 2003-06-07
The church, which has been criticized for aggressive canvassing in Ybor City, met with its neighbors this week and discussed that very question.
After the meeting, Ybor civic leader Vince Pardo was pleased. The Scientologists, he said, had agreed to dispatch no more than two people at a time to recruit new members from the streets of Ybor.
But church spokeswoman Ana Tirabassi didn't remember it that way. She said the church didn't limit itself to a number but simply agreed not to overwhelm the neighborhood.
