Asks council to back public access TV

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDFebruary 19, 2014 

It is time for Bellingham to have a public access television station. This is an issue very close to my heart. My first job, still in high school, was filming park events and city council meetings for Thurston Community television. From there, I was able to start producing my own television show where I developed my own skills as a video producer, skills that I've carried through to this day.

Public access stations, like libraries, allows future business leaders, educators and journalists to hone their skills, practice their craft and create meaningful and engaging local content. I believe it is time for the city to stop dragging their heels and start working with the Center for New Media to build this vital community resource.
