Mayor Byron W. Brown promised more economic development in the city in remarks to reporters after his victory speech tonight, but did not commit to debating his general election opponent, Republican Sergio R. Rodriguez.
News Staff Reporter Mark Sommer was at Statler City, where Brown talked about what happens next:
"We want to focus on continuing to strengthen this community economically, helping businesses to grow, and bringing more jobs to the residents of this community. You'll be seeing more housing subdivisions and development taking place. Now is the time to begin to rebuild the population of this great city.
"We want to focus on the arts community, which we think is a critical economic engine in this community, and you will see more focus there. We are going to focus on providing additional support to our public schools in a very strategic way, and I will be very aggressive in bringing more strategic support ot our schools, and to redouble our efforts in rebuilding neighborhoods."
"We gave Mr. Rodriguez three debates," he said. "We are focused on the work that needs to be done in this city now."
