I appreciated the article in the (Democrat-Herald, Oct. 22, "Albany's downtown upturn." Albany continues to take strides in becoming a city to be proud of. Thank you to Mayor Konopa, the City Council, city government, and GAPS for persevering against the naysayers who spoke against CARA, the fire and police buildings, and the school bond to name a few. These improvements cost money but this cost, when shared among us all, is small compared to the resulting investment in the vitality and livability of our city.
