Steak and pie

Dear Editor:With all the vacant buildings, the city fathers should concentrate on attracting entrepreneurs with ideas to breathe life back into Downey; if not, our many empty buildings will result in Downey eventually going the way of once very popular Huntington Park, and property values will suffer. Imagine the revenue our city would create if we could bring the very popular Polly's restaurant, and a major family steakhouse, to Downey. As it is, the sparsely located Polly's restaurants are 10 miles away in Cerritos, and Whittier, and the last major steakhouse, Charley Brown, was in Long Beach. -- James Hawkins, Downey
