Thanks to everyone who braved the wicked weather tonight to come to MNF at Pals Cabin. Thanks to the Board of Education members and all the new faces — including Tara, Jane and Allegra, plus the condo folks from Crown View and Eagle Ridge. We had a lively discussion about taxes — what else? — as well as ideas to control them, plus downtown redevelopment. We might have a couple of more coffees, if we can find space in the schedule. And it was good to see all the familiar faces as well, including Congressional candidate Roland Straten.
