City leaders need to open their ears

I read with great interest that city of Modesto management is wondering why the downtown area is financially floundering. The answer is very simple. As has been reported, but heard with deaf ears by the community leadership, the business community is quietly responding to the city’s actions and management. The business community and the general population are simply tired of the dangers of downtown, overregulation, indefensible high rents and the goofy stuff that the city leaders are so famous for.
