  Three relatively new businesses in the Hawley-Green Neighborhood of Syracuse held a joint ‘open house’ today to gain a little more exposure.  The business owners see the once-struggling area as ‘on the way up.’  They also got a bit of a helping hand to be part of the area’s revitalization.  Tim Ahart owns the Wine at 105 store…and feels they opened at the right time.

Syracuse mayoral candidate Pat Hogan wrapped up his weekly policy agenda announcements Monday by unveiling his plan to re-build the city’s neighborhoods.  

In previous weeks, Hogan has released his plans for improving education, equal rights, public safety, and jobs and the economy.  Hogan says focusing on the social fabric of the city is also important. 

Hogan says he’ll be just as engaged and accessible when he’s mayor as he is as common councilor.  Alfonso Davis is also in the race to try and unseat incumbent Stephanie Miner.
