Squawk of the Day - June 16, 2014

"Like every other similar town, retail and restaurants have moved to the suburbs and they are not coming back. People only go downtown because they have to deal with a government agency and they are afraid to go at night, so that leaves a limited opportunity for a lunch type restaurant and a few stores. Downtown is what it is and the sooner we recognize that, the better off we as taxpayers will be."
