This puny list of planned activities is exactly why I consider Coleman a weak fellow and a lightweight. So, Coleman is going to focus on arts while kids in his city are hungry.

I hope he remembers where the far east side of the city is. There have been so few projects on this side of town but there are a lot of us who are hard working families who are staying in STP hoping for better days!

Keeping the sanctuary city ugly.

Thankfully I live near (very near) but not in St. Paul. My biggest complaint about living in the suburb is the never-ending noise from all the snowplows going by all night.

"opportunities for all our children, regardless of race or family income,"

Does that mean everybody gets the free stuff rather than just a subset?

I guess basic things like crime, potholes, plowing, and making St Paul a business friendly city just aint high on his list.

Tax the daylights out of those of us who are left in this rotting city and give that money to those keeping you in power. A true Marxist.

I was thinking of picking the list apart, but I thought, why waste my time. Last term, Coleman mainly opened bike lanes and dog parks and somehow was named the leader of some all mayor group. If my fellow St. Paulites continue to vote this guy in, so be it. $102,000 down the drain.

Would Mayor Coleman be so conciliatory if any of those kids who sat in his mayor's chair became the Republican mayor of Minneapolis? Talk of collaboration is easy when who you choose to collaborate with mostly agrees with you. What might be accomplished if there was collaboration among people of various goals and aspirations?
