John is a good guy and worked his butt off to promote downtown, but it has been a one man effort on WDI's part. The businesses give little to no support to the effort. Why didn't the downtown merchants step forward to fund the 4th of July Fireworks when they are the primary beneficiaries of the event?. Now they complain that business is down this year and blame it on everything except themselves and the shoddy appearance a lot of these businesses have. I guess they think the taxpayers should provide them with paint and cleaning supplies too!
