City of Bryan Launches New Episode of “Bryan Today”
Fourth Show Features Interview with Ronnie Jackson about City’s Diversity
The City of Bryan will premiere the new episode of “Bryan Today”, the City’s in-depth television show, at noon on Thursday, June 5. The new episode highlights one of the key components to the City’s strategic plan – Diversity.
Youth and Neighborhood Services Manager Ronnie Jackson spoke with “Bryan Today’s” host, Allen Bruggman, to talk about what makes up the City’s diversity, and how he works with various organizations throughout the City to foster the growth of diversity.
“Bryan Today” also visited with City Secretary Mary Lynne Stratta to talk about diversity’s impact on Census totals, and how those counts can affect city funding. City Webmaster Shawn Smith joins the episode to talk about the Spanish-language version of BryanTX.gov, and how that caters to a younger, growing Hispanic population in the City.
One of the best examples of fostering diversity is with the NET Team from Bryan PD. “Bryan Today” visited with NET leader Sgt. Demond Oliver to talk about how the NET team’s constant presence in different, diverse communities is helping attract a higher level of involvement within the City.
