Mobile phones, social media and the internet, have made us the most “connected” society in history. Yet, sometimes it feels as though we have no connection at all to our local government and what is really going on.
It all comes down to a fight for attention in a media crazy world where people are busier than ever. If you have something to say, you’re going to have to join the fight for attention with some new and old communication techniques in order to be heard.
To improve communications and government accountability for our township, we are dedicated to the following actions:
Establish routine “push” communications through emails, texts, and newsletters to raise awareness of township activities
Increase the number of town hall style forums to provide visibility on township business activities and budget decisions
Increase township committee representation at community events and organizational meetings
