Fremont has hired a “Downtown Project Manager”

From the city of Fremont’s Facebook page:

Please join us in welcoming Jessica von Borck to the City team as our Downtown Project Manager. Jessica comes to us from the Town of Los Gatos where she served as the Economic Vitality Manager. Prior to that, she worked for the City of Mountain View in both urban planning and economic development capacities. Her area of focus in both communities was largely related to downtown development and enrichment.

As Downtown Project Manager for Fremont, she will play a key role in creating a vibrant urban mixed-use district within the City Center that will serve as a destination for the city and region. The City has positioned the Downtown as a priority area for development by committing time and resources. And as a result, Jessica will begin to coordinate internal and external partners focused on bringing the Downtown Community Plan to life.

    I think that hiring a Downtown Mgr is a excellent Idea.
    I do question the timing during a political campaign.
    Is this a political trick to enhance incumbents chances at being re-elected?
