City Website Now Features Mayor & Councillor Blogs
May 3, 2013 -
As part of the upgrades to the City of Kingston website, the Mayor and Councillor pages of the site now include a blog feature. This feature will allow Councillors to post updates and share information with residents. To view the blogs visit www.CityofKingston.ca/blogs.
"Technology and social media are transforming the way we interact and communicate with the community," said Mayor Mark Gerretsen. "This feature allows Council another avenue to share with residents about the work we do and the decisions we make. I am excited to use the blog to engage residents."
The City's website had previously offered links to the various social media sites administered by Kingston's elected municipal officials. With this new feature, residents are invited to stay connected with their Councillor by viewing their blogs on the City site and contacting the Mayor and Councillors through their posted email addresses.
"The City's website is a natural place for Kingstonians to connect with their elected municipal officials," said Susan Nicholson, Director of Corporate Affairs. "The bloggers' political views on municipal issues will add another element of information to the site."
The content of the blogs being hosted on the City's site represent the views of an individual Councillor and should be viewed as separate from the business of the City.
