We Are Not Alone

It is interesting when observing local discussions concerning the desires and needs of citizens. Every situation seemingly requires reinvention of the wheel. Not that the solutions of other cities should ever be the archetype from which to replicate. Instead, it is good to know that cities share similarities and therefore, it is to our advantage to keep up with our peers to gain some perspective.

I've always argued that our very own Duke City has one of the most magnificent settings of all major cities in the country and that our potential exceeds our ability at this time.

I ran across an article out of Tampa Bay that expresses how many of us feel and I thought I would share it.

Now if we could only capitalize on this "potential" and do something about it. One day perhaps Albuquerque will be mentioned with the likes of Portland, Austin, San Francisco, etc.
