Today, Congresswoman Laura Richardson invited the people who live in, work in or are concerned about California’s 37th Congressional District to follow her online using the popular social media sites Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
“Thanks to Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, the hundreds of thousands of people in the 37th District who are online will now have the fastest access possible to the latest news and events from my office,” Congresswoman Richardson said. “And these social media sites do more than just let me share my news and information with you, they also give you a chance to share your ideas and concerns with me, which lets me more fully meet your needs and to better represent you in Congress. And do not be fooled into thinking you are too old to use these great tools, in 2009 Facebook saw that the 35-54 age bracket was its fastest growing for users, with the 55+ group following close behind.”
Congresswoman Richardson can be found on Facebook, where fellow Facebook users can “Like” her and get updates and news on the work she is doing on behalf of the 37th District. She is on Twitter and other Twitter users are encouraged to “Follow” her to keep track of her latest news and thoughts. Visit her YouTube channel, where viewers can “Subscribe” to get updates when new videos are posted.
“I am excited to be able to offer the people of the 37th District these new opportunities to follow the work I am doing on their behalf and I look forward to welcoming as many of them as possible as my Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube ‘Friends,’” Congresswoman Richardson added.
