Faithful readers, thank you so much for visiting The recent election really brought things to a new level. Before this year, I was lucky to have 2 visitors on any given day. I've had over 700 visitors in the past month. I think it's a sign that we've finally got the momentum and energy behind downtown to really start making it happen. We all had a dream or a vision when we moved here. It's going to be up to us and the new administration to take it the next step. We have a new councilor with a lot of energy. We have a new Mayor who has pledged to open up the government and involve more of us in the process. We have some new businesses opening and new residents moving in. We have a lot to be thankful for... Here's my list of what I'm thankful for as a downtown resident. Leave a comment with your list.

10.The fantastic residents of Downtown Lynn that make eating, shopping, and owning property in Downtown Lynn completely worth it.

9. Capitol Diner and State Rep. Bob Fennel and his killer pancakes.

8. Lynn Arts for bringing us Third Thursday's and Meet Me Downtown

7. RAW Arts and their fantastic fundraisers including this year's incredible event at Zimman's

6.  Dunkin Donuts, Tres Virtudes, Flavaz, East Coast Karate, Columbia Insurance, Free Wind Travel, and Omar and Oscar for filling the storefronts on our block of Central Square.

5. Jamie Marsh and his absolute love for the City of Lynn and focus on important landmarks.

4. Seth and for tirelessly taping and posting all election debates, city council meetings, and everything else they do to keep us informed.

3. State Rep. Steven Walsh and all he does to directly impact downtown's re-birth. The fight for the Blue Line, the Waterfront, the power lines, cultural events downtown, are all him. Thank him every time you see him.

1. Mayor Elect Judy Flanagan Kennedy and her approach to open and community inclusive government.

Onward!!! A special thank you to our troops for defending our country and protecting our right to speak and live freely. I'm very thankful for all of you for caring enough to read and contribute to this blog and the other blogs of Lynners. Together, we're going to make this downtown the Blue Line's Central Square.
