Letter: Downtown guy

Jude Reichenthal, Bonita Springs

Downtown guy

If our current mayor is so dedicated to downtown revitalization why did he not speak up when City Hall was built on Bonita Beach Road?

Where was he when the main fire station with all of its office employees was built on Bonita Grande?

Where was he when the chamber of commerce moved to Bonita Beach Road? Ditto for the sheriff's substation.

Dave Grothaus can do more for Old 41 revitalization in four years than Ben Nelson has done in his 12 years on council.

Dave has lived in many downtowns and has visited many others.

Dave has earned a master of science degree in mangement.

Ben does not even have a basic college degree.

Dave has travelled the world in the service of his country and has seen many downtowns. Nelson has travelled very little. He has not internalized the spirit of any downtowns.

For a vibrant downtown to develop organically we need a vibrant, free and democratic climate in Bonita.

Grothaus is a breath of fresh air.

If you really want a unique downtown, an anti-mall, please help me elect Dave Grothaus as our next mayor.
