TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) Temple’s new Main Street manager is on the job and working to get to know the community.

Dan Kelleher started the job in October after spending two decades leading downtown improvement efforts in cities in Washington state, Virginia, Kentucky and Texas.

His career started in Kent, Wash., where his family had a business that restored and operated historic buildings.

He ran for city council there on a platform of downtown revitalization and by the time he completed a second four-year term as mayor, his efforts had attracted nearly $200 million in public and private investment in targeted downtown redevelopment zone.
