Austin Film Community Appreciates Wynn's Vision and Leadership
RECEIVED Wed., June 9, 2004
Dear Editor, Following up on Mike Clark-Madison's performance review of Mayor Wynn for year one ("Where's the Mayor?" News, June 4), I'd like to point out the mayor's strong record when it comes to the film industry. Both as a council member and as mayor, Will Wynn has set the tone for Austin's impressive courtship of the film industry. The results are self-evident: Austin received an 84% share of the budgets of all films made in Texas in 2003, and earlier this year, we were named the No. 1 city in America for making a movie by MovieMaker Magazine. We would like to give the mayor credit for his vision and leadership in this area of Austin's civic life.
Sincerely, Rebecca Campbell Executive Director Austin Film Society
