First let me start by offering a heartfelt thanks and congratulations to the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce for a successful and important inaugural Equity Summit yesterday. In a moment where messages about division dominate our headlines and disparities are all too prevalent, this event brought together key leaders (many of whom had never met before) in the spirit of celebrating our differences and leveraging our multiculturalism. Once again, Mayor Carter eloquently reminded us that our many languages, cultures, and diversity, are not challenges to be managed, but qualities that position Saint Paul for greatness.
Let me also congratulate all of the candidates and campaigns whose efforts culminated with elections this week. We look forward to working together with a range of new public leaders to drive more jobs and vitality into downtown Saint Paul.
And finally, please note the
Smart Cities Social

See you all around (down)town,
The Saint Paul Downtown Alliance
