I think it’s wonderful that we do have Columbia Access Television. One of the great things about Columbia is the community involvement that we have here.... It’s spectacular. And Columbia Access Television is a prime example of that. And I’m proud that the city is able to do its part in supporting it.... Let me point out that supporting a creative community is one of the best economic development investments you can possibly make.
