A note from the president
Hey Friends,

While it's been a short week, it's been jam-packed with momentous occasions, like the swearing in of Saint Paul's newest City Council member, Mitra Jalali Nelson. While she may not specifically represent downtown, we are excited to have her on the team. Her unique perspective represents a growing number of Saint Paul residents, and her passion for Saint Paul will be a make for a great voice on the City Council. Please join me in welcoming our newest elected official!

See you all around (down)town,

Joe Spencer
President
