He was in some kind of political battle with Marriot and the University.
Maybe they ran him out of town. Used to park his van down the end near
Billings/Williams. I actually agreed with his complaints against the
university re: not allowing any non-Marriot food on campus, but he was
such a jerk about it he probably derailed any plans to provide hookups &
better sidewalk access on U row (instead of mud and old carpets).

As a non-food plan student the carts seemed like a good way to encourtage
competition and loosen Marriots stranglehold on students' wallets.
Personally I would Like to see Marriot booted off campus completely and
just have real live stores and restaurants rent space from UVM, but I
suppse they wouldnt be able to milk the student body out of as much dough
that way.
