Wow! Everywhere I go people are wanting to talk with me about last week’s Arts Showcase & Campaign Kick-Off. From Jack Will at Jefferson County League of Cities who loved the Ballet’s performance from the Brown-Forman Nutcracker to Breck Thomas Ross at Humana who said she’s all geared up for the campaign. We even heard Greg Heitzman sing a solo while Mayor Greg Fisher, Congressman John Yarmuth, Angela Leet and Dave Calzi jumped onto the stage for the tap dance finale.  Rumor has it, Metro Councilman Jerry Miller said this was the best showcase he’s seen and he’s been to all of them.  You gotta see what really happened in this week’s video blog above. While you are at it check out the photos on Flickr. Like us on Facebook and don’t skip a beat.
