Given the numerous public policy challenges faced by our region, it is imperative that we operate from an accurate and factual basis when evaluating our public policy options. This network will increase our breadth and depth throughout the Valley and allow us to more effectively inform the region on public policy issues. This will help our elected politicians, government leaders, and citizens make more informed—and better—decisions that will ultimately benefit the region. We have developed strong relationships with federal, state, and local public officials and our TV and radio programs have resulted in working relationships with key leaders at the State Capitol and important think tanks around the state.”
