He says he has "intangibles" he can use to turn the city around. Ahhh, intangibles. That's what we needed. Why didn't anybody else think of using those? Sure he's just a 28 year old student with no experience yet he lived here and experienced the decline. Plus he has those intangibles going for him. It could sell.
