Building a Better Saint Paul was created to educate and engage voters in the upcoming mayoral election. Public safety continues to be a critical challenge for St. Paul, but our efforts to ensure it was a part of the debate fell short.
Building a Better Saint Paul is ceasing all activities and will take the necessary steps to dissolve the organization.
As the chairman for Building a Better Saint Paul, the buck stops with me. I accept full responsibility for the actions of the organization and the direct-mail post card that was sent to voters. The information in the post card came directly from many media stories and the police reports that continue to show inconsistencies.
Brian M. Bergson, chairman, Building a Better St. Paul
