The Voice of Brooksville Main Street

Welcome to the Voice of Brooksville Main Street, a blog we hope you will always find “straight-up” (as my uncle used to put it). By that I mean, we are committed to bringing you facts, figures and opinions about matters concerning Brooksville Main Street that are professional, meaningful, accurate, and which sometimes you may find a bit edgy. 
 
Our goal is to make sure you, as a Brooksville business or property owner, have a voice. So, the Voice of Brooksville Main Street is going to express what we find are your voices, and which we’ll share anonymously with others, unless you wish otherwise. 
 
You will find “first person singular” used freely here because a real person will be writing the words, not an institution or department, a real human, starting with me, but with others who are out in the community, engaged: 
  • working to help revitalize the city by locating and keeping thriving businesses behind the store-fronts, 
  • respecting and protecting its unique historical architectural heritage, 
  • and finding ways to bring the full strength and good-faith commitment of our City Council on board to help Brooksville, our City, achieve the amazing promise it holds.
So, welcome. Come along with me. Get engaged. Speak up. Join the Brooksville parade of voices who support our, and your, goals for the City. 
 
We Believe in Brooksville!
… stay tuned.
