Happy Summer everyone!
TLG in Saint Paul was a great success. In addition to hearing about some fo the best ideas in local government for the year (neighborhood partnership grants, art made out of data, and Tweet-a-Longs to name a few), we also launched our first speed dating ambassador networking event and networked in a former national court house where John Dillinger and other mobsters left their mark.
