A twitterview with Kingston Alderman Tom Hoffay

I decided to do a drive-by interview today, via Twitter, with Kingston Alderman Tom Hoffay about the proposed fee that would be imposed to filmmakers who want to shoot in Kingston.
What follows is the twitterview.

@ivanlajara shouldn't we at least be in facebook?less than a minute ago via web


@tomhoffay Nope. I like my beer cold and my public conversations public. Anyway, who supports the measure?less than a minute ago via TweetDeck



And then he called. Because, man, is it hard to have a twitter interview or what?
By the way, we spoke for a long time. And I just checked my copious notes.

No word on who supports the measure, other than the council.
