I read with interest your Jan. 18 letter titled "What public benefit would come of Caruso's quest?" Really? You can't think of anything?
Glendale, like most cities in our state, is swimming in red ink, and with our newly elected governor threatening more cuts including debating the existence of redevelopment, deficits will grow. The city of Glendale could be facing an $8-million deficit next year, even after painful cuts.
Just think how much worse it could have been, if not for the city's vision to redevelop downtown and support Rick Caruso in his efforts to build the Americana at Brand.
