I was able to attend the Minneapolis Downtown Council Annual Meeting today. I believe this was the first back in the Armory since the 2020 meeting.

The outgoing chair Mike Ryan gave a good overview of the improtance of downtown and the council, and also welcomed the new chair Karin Lucas from SPS Commerce!

SPS is the 10th largest employer downtown with 1,346 people!

I enjoyed the session that Amelia Santaniello led with Steve Cramer, Greg Cunningham, and Mayor Jacob Frey. Frey got up at one point and gave a stump speech for Minneapolis which was great.
