    One can understand the apprehension of the neighbors.

    And yet, this is an interesting looking building, so unlike its extant neighbors.

    Maybe that’s what good government is for; namely, establishing processes that

    competing interests can respect.

    Not dinners for Mattiello.

    Not craven, vulgar snobbishness.

    What can you do for the neighborhood?

    How can we build nice projects with class?

    I hope that victory goes to those who have a coherent vision
    for Providence as a beautiful destination city.

    A beautiful environment into which one can travel for dinners, movies, and shows.

    An exciting beautifully preserved Old City.

    A Design Capitol, in the buildings and in the garages and on the Street.

    I hope that Providence becomes the New England nexus

    for the Relaxed Now.

    And then?

    Then, down the Platinum Coast to Newport.

    A City of Poets.

    Coasts of artists.

    A creative State of Mind.


    A State of Mimes??

    No, silly.
