Taste of Downey

Dear Editor:What's going on with The Downey Patriot? I've been trying hard not to rag on this great newspaper, but after looking at the "Downey 2010…A Year to Remember" magazine, and also the newspaper itself, I find not one word about a great event that happened one evening at City Hall: the Taste of Downey. What about telling us who put this together, how fabulous it was and how many people attended? Well kudos to all those who put this event together and to the restaurants that supported it. I have the highest regard for all of you. I, for one, think the city should give special recognition to these restaurants and their owners and staff who participated. What a great gathering of the people of Downey. It was wonderful to see the support of the fire and police departments, mayor and City Council members, and to see city officials and citizens coming together just to enjoy a wonderful evening out. I only hope this kind of event will be planned for next year. I have no idea how many people showed up for an evening in Downey, but you all should plan on attending the next Taste of Downey. -- Bob Gustafson, Downey
