A2: Visitors

Ever wonder what our community leaders tell visitors to Ann Arbor about the city’s town gown relations? @orangepolitics is Twittering live the remarks of A2 and UM luminaries. Highlights: “Jim Kosteva, UofM: ‘town-gown relations are like a marriage wher divorce is not an option.’ Then he hands the city councilwmn some flowers!” Councilwoman in question is Briere. [Source]

    I’m so glad we connected online, even though we didn’t in person!

    I just about threw up when the U’s local relations guy made such a shallow, sexist gesture to a local elected official. Town-Gown relations have been really bad in Chapel Hill the last 10 years, bu visiting Ann Arbor actually made me realize we’re on better footing than I thought!

    I think we’ll have a lot more discussion about the Ann Arbor trip in the next week, you can find it all at http://www.orangepolitics.org/tags/ann-arbor

    Thanks for the great work you are doing!
