I took this photo this afternoon of Carleton College grad Colin McLain with Northfield Economic Development Manager Charlene Coulombe-Fiore in her office at City Hall. Charlene had attached a comment here on Locally Grown earlier today alerting citizens that today was Colin’s last day as a paid intern.
The newspaper did a story on city interns this summer and he was also cited in an article a couple weeks ago as the person who upgraded the EDA portion of the city’s website. (It’s not a new website but there is new domain name northfieldeda.org that redirects to the EDA pages.) Tracy and Ross have been impressed with Colin in their dealings with him. “Somewhat more than marginally adequate” was the phrase they used, I believe.
I got there too late to capture the complete phrase written out on the cake (right photo). Since Colin is from the St. Louis area, I’m assuming he’s had to deal with guilt-by-association regarding the city’s ‘missing’ millions from St. Louis-based Rate Search. ‘Tough Luck, Colin!’ How’s that for icing on the cake?
