Minute with the mayor

See video

This is the first in a new VOTV series "Minute with the Mayor." Special, huge thanks to Anne Watson for the high quality of the video production.  And thanks to Jacob Barker for last minute editing.  Let us not forget Ricky Letovsky. It takes a village to make a minute.
