Thanks for dropping by. One of the challenges in having a large rural riding is representing people effectively. Nothing can replace face to face interaction, but sometimes this is just not possible. We organize townhalls and meet and greets across the riding on a regular basis but it is hard to find times that work for everyone. We use facebook and twitter but not everyone does and these platforms can be hit and miss and whether our news show up in people’s feeds is beyond our control.
So, as part of our ongoing efforts to communicate more effectively with constituents we have decided to set up our own website. Having our own website gives us more options than using a facebook page or having space on the Alberta NDP Caucus website. It will allow us to be more interactive in surveys and online discussions, allow people to subscribe to updates to issues and events, and host documents that can provide more background to events.
This website is a work in progress, and we would love to have your suggestions! You can contact us directly or use the comments below to post your comments. If you would like to be notified of updates please make sure to subscribe and you will get an email notice when something new is posted. Looking forward to hearing from you, Colin.
