Call for action

Dear Editor:I was pleased to see positive responses to the letter I sent in two weeks ago. ("High Hopes for Avenue Theatre," 5/8/09) It is refreshing to know that like-minded individuals within this city are letting their opinions be seen, but much like with my proposals for the Avenue, there needs to be action taken. I am inviting all persons who are concerned, dismayed or simply wondering about the fate of the Avenue to the upcoming City Council meeting (May 26) to voice their opinion directly to those in charge of pushing the buttons or to simply be there to support the idea that the citizens of Downey genuinely care about the preservation and advancement of their past. The best way to bring about a change in the mindset of our leaders is to let them know that we are concerned about the decisions, especially those like their insisting on not informing the public of what will become of the Avenue until they have decided outside of the public's view. I plan to see a packed council chambers with all of you there! - Jared Head, Downey
