I was at the groundbreaking ceremony for the building that will house the District of Columbia’s Office of Cable Television’s and its three public, educational and governmental television stations, and I have to say I was impressed by the way the DC government handled the business. The speeches were limited to a few officials—including Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and Eric Richardson, the director of OCT—but the focus remained fixed on OCT and how the renovated building will better serve Washington’s residents. There was a real lack of political crowing. Congrats to DC.
