“Over the last seven years, I’ve watched League City grow rapidly, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with professional and talented staff members to expand the communication services to meet the demands of a growing city,” Wyatt said.  “I am honored to join the San Marcos team, and I look forward to partnering with the City staff to provide dynamic, creative, and comprehensive communications to residents and shape communication services to keep up with the needs of America’s fastest-growing city.”
