Mayor's Table videos to resume in May
Videos will be released at 9 a.m. on the first and third Monday of each month
FARMINGTON — Farmington Mayor Nate Duckett has announced he will relaunch the Mayor’s Table video series started in late 2015 by his predecessor Tommy Roberts.
“I think people need to know what government’s doing and I think for me it’s about telling the story of Farmington,” Duckett said when reached by phone today.
The videos will be posted on the city of Farmington’s YouTube channel, social media and website, fmtn.org.
Roberts used the video series to inform residents about city budgets, recreation opportunities, construction projects and tough topics like the future closure of the San Juan Generating Station and the loss of Great Lakes Airlines during the 111 episodes.
Duckett said his series will touch on many of the similar topics. He said in the upcoming two years he will talk about the big projects that Farmington is embarking on, including the downtown Complete Streets project, Farmington Lake, the aquatic center at Brookside Park, Four Corners Economic Development and the future closure of San Juan Generating Station.
He said there will be a lot of on-site, event-oriented episodes. Videos will be released at 9 a.m. on the first and third Monday of each month starting in May.
The videos will not be as frequent as Roberts’ weekly episodes, but Duckett said there will still be plenty of opportunities to learn about the city government. He said one reason that the videos will only be twice a month is that he is also doing a weekly radio show.
Duckett participates in a radio talk show called Money Belt Radio at 4 p.m. every Saturday. People can listen to the show on KENN 92.1 FM.
