<p>I drove to Charlottesville for the Virginia State Neighborhood Conference, and it was a blast.</p> 

<p>I was eating scrambled eggs at a table with attendees from Hampton, Roanoke and Danville.  We were sharing ideas, waiting for the suits to show up – you know, the guys from city hall who are pleased-to-welcome-you-on-behalf-of.  But the only person sitting at the head table was a man in a turban. I thought, “Someone’s going to have to tell him that’s reserved for the suits.”</p>

<p>Turns out he’s the mayor of Charlottesville, Mr. Satyendra Singh Huja!  That was humbling.  Even more so, to see the significance this long-time city planner has had on Charlottesville.  Our mobile workshop deployed via school bus through neighborhoods he worked to preserve.  We also walked seven blocks of the Historic Downtown Mall he helped transform into a truly vibrant city center.  My favorite part was the community chalkboard and podium (memorial to the First Amendment).  Several of us wrote our thoughts freely with chalk in hand.</p>
