Matt White
Mayor
"We felt like we were nearing a pivotal time in our city’s history and augmenting our economic diversity with a new sustainable industry just made sense for our community, It also helps that we are lucky enough to have an enthusiastic liaison in Steve Maddox – whose wife asked him to get a ‘hobby’, which turned into a passion for the movie industry. And now we have a dynamic group of individuals at the ERTVFC looking to further the film industry here in town."
