Mesa enters the digital age

The City of Mesa is now facebooking, youtubing and twittering. Its great news for those who rarely visit the City's site and don't have the time to decipher the antiquated categorizing systems that seem to pervade all government websites.

Glad to see that Councilman Scott Somers is also giving twitter a try. We would like to re-extend our offer to him and the other council people to share with us a state of the district post as a guest blogger on Mesa Issues.

Making government more open and accessible is a noble effort, one that builds trust and expands understand of what, exactly, it is that local government does. Good luck on their endeavor, and hope it leads to genuiune community discussion and engagement.
