Mayor Dan Devine called yesterday to congratulate me and to thank me for bringing the arts to West Allis. We spoke of art and theatre and travel and ... it was a great conversation, full of encouragement and words of support! Thanks for making my day, Mayor Dan! I look forward to meeting you at the Grand Opening on March 1st.
