Letter: A little color might spruce up downtown

The Concord Monitor has been asking for suggestions from the community about improving the look of downtown. I recommend that interested people view a TED talk posted online recently. The presentation was entitled: “Take Back Your City with Paint” by Edi Rama, the mayor of a city in Albania which had been deteriorating for years. The creative use of paint on the buildings led to much more than a spruced-up appearance. The city blossomed and prospered. Check it out.

It simply is .....not.... Not..... NOT.......the governments job to spruce up a city. the sole job of Govt is to simply provide those goods and services that the private sector finds either undesirable or unprofitable - PERIOD
