We need to learn..from how other towns and businesses do things to grow

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' I enjoy watching CNBC network and shows like The: Deed, Partner, Profit and Cleveland Hustles. Being an entrepreneur, I appreciate this small biz spirit and am trying to learn how they can help me. Cleveland is alot like other cities in trouble due to the economy, downsizing, outsourcing and foreclosures and the social ills that go along with it like crime, alcoholism, drug addiction, homelessness and mental illness. Detroit, Newark, New Orleans also come to mind. Some see opportunity where others see failure. The same can be said for Cohoes. What can we do to revitalize this town? How can we get everyone to care about where live, even if don't own but rent? As have said before, everyone here needs to be considered and not just those fortunate enough to have good jobs, successful, profitable businesses,supports such as good friends and close-knit ties like family and not just a select few? How do we encourage people to get involved in bettering Cohoes? How do we get public officials to care about the constituents they are supposed to serve and not just look at their positions as jobs? Is common for politicians to support the interests of those who got them elected. Often their campaigns are supported by the wealthy, comfortable with some pull and not the little guy. However the poor are a very real part of the land scape of many a small struggling community like Cohoes. Helping all is what we mean by community. Instead of the usual bitcch session of complaints, I am offering answers here. Let's see what other towns are doing to help their communities and learn from them to help our own. One way to grow is to support small, new businesses and future entrepreneurs as well. Training young people to learn a trade is vital. Creating an incubator and pilot program here for the city so can change for the better is a real possibility and necessity here. As Harry Milk said "You got to give them hope". Hope is what is needed here in Cohoes to see it great again or at least better. Yeh, I'll take better!
