Iowa Caucus 2016

Interesting Night for Iowa

Tonight is the first caucus for the 2016 presidential election. It will show a forecast for the primary and general season. Right now at 10 pm, Cruz is in the lead by 3 points followed by Trump. Before the caucus started, many were predicting for Trump to win. On the other side, Hillary is in the lead by 1 percent. It is a close night for each side which means this presidential race is going to be a close one. It will be interesting to see who will come out on top for each side and become the nominee.

State of the City - Wilmington, NC

State of the City - Wilmington, NC

Last night, Mayor of Wilmington Bill Saffo, gave the State of the City address. Here is 5 things to take away:

"1. Transportation improvements - Design is underway for 13 of the 38 projects included in the $55 million transportation bond package voters approved in 2014. As part of the $41 million five-year capital improvement plan for infrastructure improvements, the city has paved more than 50 lane miles of streets.

2. Downtown development - Downtown is seeing a building boom, from apartments to office space. A developer is preparing to break ground on a convention center hotel. The city is progressing on redevelopment of the Water Street parking deck and has finished a 1,100-foot section of the Riverwalk.

3. Public safety - Though the city has lower overall crime rates, Wilmington has seen a spike in violent crime the mayor acknowledged is frustrating. The city has funded new police and community programming to address crime and will continue to put resources toward the issue.

4. Big business - Vertex has hired nearly 200 workers and plans a total of 1,300 new jobs to manufacture freight rail cars. AAIPharma will hire 50 workers as the drug development and manufacturing provider expands lab operations and invests $20 million in a new corporate headquarters.

5. Coming in 2016 - The city will update its brick streets policy, find ways to increase affordable housing, work to find Wave Transit reliable funding and continue infrastructure improvements. With an estimated 50,000 new residents, the city will adopt a comprehensive plan to guide development."
