I was shocked to read the article about George Lucas and his museum! Not that he is going to build one, but that he isnt considering Modesto!
This seems like a golden opportunity for Modesto! We already have the beautiful Gallo Center for the Arts, and the new courthouse is coming ... so why arent our city leaders going after this opportunity? It doesnt make any sense!
Mr. Lucas is all about education, and educational/economic challenges. What better place to plunk down some serious money than his hometown, which is plagued by both!!!
Is there a committee approaching Mr. Lucas people on this museum? If not, come on, Modesto, its time to look to the future and the possibilities which a museum of this caliber could bring! Mayor Marsh, look ahead!
