Pony first; cart after
Don’t blame over-burdened, under-employed Hillsborough County residents for the lack of infrastructure in downtown Tampa.
The first to benefit would be downtown businesses and land owners; they should be the first to pony up.
They are the private part of public/private partnerships still sitting on the sidelines waiting for the taxpaying public to load the carts for them.
Once the promised high-wage, good-benefit, full-time jobs materialize, the newly employed will shop, eat, play and live downtown.
Their taxes will then also help fund teachers, police, firefighters and public works.
Pony first; cart after.
