I have certainly had my differences with Jon. But there is no question he has been an extraordinary soldier in the establishing the film industry in New Mexico. I have great respect for his accomplishments and know that when 480 gets on the set, they deliver. It is through respectful dialogue that all voices are heard and the local producing community has its own responsibility of delivering.
Three cheers to 480 and hats off to Jon.
Best to all,

Jon and the 480 have done a lot of work to help make the film industry
work in New Mexico. I know a lot of people have had their differences
along the way, but we're seeing a lot good things happen as a result of
their efforts. There are tons of opportunities. It still requires a lot
of hard work, but the door is open thanks to some of these people. They
can't eliminate the fact that it is a tough industry to make your way
through but they certainly have tried to help us along the way. So take a
moment to celebrate the hard work of the 480 and put your personal issues
aside for the day at least.
