Liberals Are A Bunch Of Phonies
On New Years Eve the Downtown Plaza was literally packed with people celebrating and having a great time.
The Mayor and friends got on social media and did a fantastic job reaching out and drawing in thousands of people. However, Mayor Ireton in his self proclaimed way like to tout himself as a founder of the 3rd Friday event. I can tell you first hand, this is very far from the truth.
Nevertheless, Jim Ireton and Jake Day, (both of whom I did not see when I was at 3rd Friday) are pushing for their vision of a revitalized Downtown, yet it is very evident they did not reach out to that very same crowd from New Years Eve to support this 3rd Friday event.
Look, in BUSINESS you MUST push as hard as humanly possible, (especially after such a massive success NYE) to keep the MOMENTUM going. That is, IF you really support a Downtown revitalization.
So I'm taking these pictures and a guy walks up to me and says, what are you taking pictures of. I said, 3rd Friday and the Plaza. He said, but there's no one here. I know some will attempt to come on here and say this was more of an indoor event this month. Look, I was there and I can tell you flat out, I looked in the buildings and it was deader than I have ever seen it. Oh there were people inside but it was mainly vendors and a hand full of customers. Even the Bars were empty.
While your Mayor likes to claim 3rd Friday as one of his pet projects, (not true) he obviously fell asleep at the wheel this month. Pictures do NOT lie.
