If art is such a potent economic force, why is this guy forced to go into politics in order to feed his family?

St. Paul is the place where all the great events are happening. I love the Irish Fest, Jazz Fest and I understand Flugtag was one of the largest events ever in the state. Great job!!

I called the mayor's office with a complaint once and this guy answered the phones. I wasn't sure what his function was as apparently he didn't feel compelled to respond to my complaint nor to forward it. Really, I would rather pay city staff who provide some kind of service and I told him so. When I quizzed him as to why an "Art Director" was answering the phones, he also wasn't able to define his job for me. The comic relief I gained from this interaction with city hall though was priceless, it almost made me giggle upon receipt of my property tax bill. I guess that's what Chris Osgood was talking about about how Joe is integrating the arts and entertainment right into the community.

At last, St. Paul is capitalizing on being cool! I lived in downtown St. Paul for 8 terrific years, and I'm delighted with every added attraction to induce people to spend time downtown! Hooray!
