He mentions learning that he cannot do anything by himself without the private sector partnering with the city, regarding downtown redevelopment. He shares his views about criticism of selling land next to the Lady Luck to CIM, which bought the Lady Luck in 2007 and plans to refurbish it for less than the appraised value.
