Can The Downtown Plaza Truly Be Revitalized?

During my campaign for Mayor I presented a vision of what I thought would be in the best interest for the Downtown Plaza. Today, (it seems) Mayor Ireton is following my lead and so is the Tilghman Family.

Here's the problem though. For the past two decades we have watched the Downtown fall into disrepair and your leadership did very little to truly bring it back to life. I stated years ago that the intent was to drive down property values and soon enough those special interests would start buying up and or investing Downtown and guess what, it's now happening.
