Wonderful, just what we need! Mr. Hippy Mayor as head of the PDA. He will probably want to left wing loonize downtown, and make everything politically correct. He will probably also want to raise the merchants' assesments for the PDA.

Is it because he did such a FANTASTIC job last year?
Downtown is just as quiet as it was. Hmmmm.

If either of you think the PDA isn't doing a good job or you are concerned about the downtown, please attend a meeting or two. The committee meetings are open to the public. You might learn a thing or two about downtown and if you have real concerns, you might be able to work with the PDA to make some changes. OR you could continue to spend your day criticizing the world around you.

The easiest path in life is to find fault in everyone and everything. When you start to grow as a person is when you challenge yourself to make a difference.

Hey William, the 'educated' one says all you have to do
is attend their meetings. You can make the whole difference!
So why do we need them then? Isn't that their job?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
