The OESH Factory is located in an industrial area of Charlottesville, Virginia. Unlike many cities that have substantial issues in managing heavy volumes of industrial waste, for the most part, Charlottesville’s urban economic area is vibrant without being overtly grimy. We’ve always felt fortunate to be embedded in our community as OESH grows–it’s great to be in the midst of such activity. Just beyond the recent elections here, we caught this interview from a creative and thoughtful candidate, Anson Parker, for the Charlottesville City Council (Anson’s full interview on the Charlottesville Tomorrow website, chock full of intelligent ideas, can be found here).
WHAM!, Anson lays out the long-term economic benefit of developing a modern, highly-productive workforce and references one of the brilliant movies of the 1980s…Who says developing a credible economic plan can’t be fun?
Taking shoe design and politics to 11…now that’s our idea of good government!
