Don Samuels Gives A "Stand Up And Say Hallelujah" Speech At Ackerberg Group Groundbreaking In NoMi
North Minneapolis marketing expert Pat Carney forwarded a link to numerous images he captured at yesterday's groundbreaking ceremony at 1200 Broadway, click here, part of exciting redevelopment and revitalization by the Ackerberg Group. No doubt some of the...

For those involved in their neighborhood associations, and other groups working toward massive revitalization, life in NoMi continues to be endless socialization, soirees, elbow-rubbing with big wigs, and delightful free refreshments; these pleasurable moments periodically punctuated by gritty struggle, click here for a good example.
According to both Pat Carney and Realtor Connie Nompelis, (No-bell-iss) Councilman Don Samuels was in fine form, and gave a rousing speech. Carney called it a "stand up and say hallelujah" speech. Nompelis said Samuels talked about how he always believed in North Minneapolis, and had for years, and now the prediction was coming to pass as evidenced by rampant revitalization. Therefore now was not the time to stand on the sidelines, but to believe and to buy property in North Minneapolis.
Has this blog mentioned how much NoMi wants Mayor Rybak to buy his next house in our neighborhood? Oh, yes, I think I did, click here. Right now, I'd settle for definitive word that Mayor Rybak is LOOKING at houses in North Minneapolis, and what neighborhoods are catching the mayor's eye.
If you're unhappy that you missed the Ackerberg Group soiree (like I did!) don't worry, there are two exciting NoMi social events happening on Saturday. Details will follow in my next two blog posts.
