Integrated networks – or when a plan comes together…

Okay - a confession.  I'm a fan of StreetFilms, a big fan actually.  They do an excellent job of illustrating issues and ideas many of which as dead nuts on with what we at the Coalition are promoting for our region.  And it doesn't hurt that the production values are great.  So rest assured that you'll see more them showing up here.
