The 2016 presidential race is shaping up to be one of the most fascinating contests in recent history, with a wide range of candidates from both parties. Because there are so many candidates, branding is ever more essential in differentiating them from each other and visually representing their personalities and messages. Some are more successful than others.

NATOA in San Diego

Last week, I attended the NATOA (National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors) Conference in San Diego, California. The conference brought together local government IT professionals, government access programmers and communication and cable decision-makers from across the country. There were opportunities to network and participate in educational sessions and discussions. I attended this conference last year, but it was clear that progress has been made and that a lot changes in twelve months in this industry.

New Government Media Feature

NewTV’s Government Media Department has had a busy kick-off to summer. We’ve been covering several community meetings and hearings including the recent Austin Street and leaf blower ban input sessions. This type of unedited public process coverage is an effort that will continue to grow in the coming months and demonstrates the core belief of democracy in promoting active government-citizen participation.

Freedom of NewTV

Saturday is July 4th, and while this holiday is usually celebrated with fireworks, barbecues and picnics, it really commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence of the United States. The Revolutionary War was fought and colonists won their independence from the Great Britain. Years later, in 1791, the Bill of Rights or the first ten amendments to the constitution were passed. You probably learned all of this in history class many times. You also probably learned that the first amendment protects your right to free speech, along with freedom of religion, press, assembly and petition. July 4th is a great chance to celebrate the United State and the freedom given to its citizens by the constitution.

Report from the NATOA Annual Conference

I recently attended the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA) conference in St. Paul, MN. Geared toward professionals working in municipal and county government, it was a great meeting point to learn as well as share different initiatives that are bringing information to constituents. Discussions underscored the changing landscape in how government will need to be flexible, thoughtful, as well as innovative in the near future to address the needs of community stakeholders.
