Minneapolis Mayor Ryback interview

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Ryback speaks to Sarah McKenzie in a brief interview published in the Downtown Journal/Skyway News. There is not one mention of crime.

The mayor is, however, interested in foot traffic, retail, and "tremendous unique, one-of-a-kind restaurants".

Rybak: I’m very interested in improving the pedestrian experience so that
we can create excitement just in walking down the street.
Believe us, Mayor, its already very exciting walking the streets of Minneapolis (See previous post). With the job you and Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar are doing, there will be no shortage of excitement in Minneapolis in 2006, just maybe not the kind you envision.

Who's looking out for you, citizens of Minneapolis?
