Downtown Crime?

Crime is on the increase in America. So our area crime rate will also increase. Our state and local legal systems, and mental health services, tell us they are underfunded and out of control. First things first. In other words, do you want a Downtown Convention Center that will operate in the red, more unnecessary studies and reports, successful developers who do not pay for infrastructure....or adequate police protection, along with sufficiently operating courts and prisons? This means electing candidates who will not tax you to death, and then "waste" your money, and not provide the necessary government services. Yes, the late night bars cause problems. But this is a town of many college students, tourists, and young people from nearby areas who have no where else to go for nightlife. So the bars are here to stay. And Downtown does need the revenue, or Wilmington will become yet another ghost town at night. More street lamps and trimming shrubbery is a humorous solution. Real Solution: Fund the solutions by electing responsible representatives, and contribute what YOU can in time and effort to your community as a citizen.
