Councilor Hoyt added that in order for our city to attract national and global investors, balanced media coverage is an essential component.

“I know we’re not a perfect council or city for that matter, and yes we have to be accountable for everything that takes place on our watches,” Councilor Hoyt said. “We also have to be adamant and just as eager to promote the greatness and milestones that we achieve as well. I take that very seriously and I’m sure our citizens will appreciate the transparency.”
