Newburgh, N.Y., which boasts the largest historic district in New York State, was once called "The Best All-American City" by a leading publication. Nearly fifty years later, it has been labeled "The State's Most Violent City". Drugs and crime run rampant. Newburgh's history is not unlike many other Hudson River cities. Urban Renewal destroyed many of the magnificent buildings. The building of a bridge, and the introduction of shopping malls took people away from waterfront shopping. But in Newburgh, the added politics and corruption lead to blight. The 2004 documentary examines the past, then provides a revealing probe into the 2003 administration, which was rife with controversy. "Honest Mayor Wanted: Apply Newburgh, N.Y." bumper stickers were left around the city by outraged citizens after $380,000 of city funds were mysteriously transferred to friends of the mayor. An underground web-site sprung up discussing both political and personal issues. As four candidates began their bid for the job of mayor, the notion of "working together to make this a better place" seemed far-fetched. The film follows each candidate in their bid for the mayor's seat, as well as several prominent Newburgh citizens, 'fighting' to bring the city back.
