A note from the president
This week provided another example of our strength as a community. We have the strongest civic partnership among private and public leaders of any state in the nation. I felt incredibly proud to see Downtown Alliance board members Doug Baker (Ecolab) and Andrea Walsh (Health Partners) as well as countless others standing up and lending their incredible companies and business minds to help Governor Walz lead the country in testing. Many thanks to all of our private and public leaders for everything you are doing for our communities.
We had some good news yesterday from Governor Walz that will allow more folks back to their jobs (and paychecks) sooner than expected, while also hearing officially that our kids won’t be back in the school buildings until next fall (hopefully). As much as I love the extra time with nestlings, I sure am looking forward to seeing all of you again.
Finally, be sure to take advantage of the virtual events this week. I’m super bummed not to be at Art Crawl in person, but looking forward to the virtual edition of the semi-annual tradition.
Stay safe and be well,
Saint Paul Downtown Alliance
