Mayor Angie Devanney has launched her official Facebook page. You can follow it at https://www.facebook.com/MayorAngie.
This is another first in Berkeley Heights; no other mayor in Berkeley Heights’ history had their own official Facebook page.
In this era of social media proliferation, Mayor Devanney said she recognizes the need to utilize this medium to connect with residents, and give them an outlet for direct communication with their elected officials. It is a way to personalize government for the residents.
“Facebook is a platform so many of our residents use to get information about local events, issues that matter to them, activities their friends or kids are involved with, and their communities. It provides great opportunities for local officials – and officials at all levels, for that matter - to personally connect with the residents, and to convey what goes on behind the scenes in their government. I’m excited to share what I do day-to-day in my position as Mayor, and to highlight the stories of the residents I meet and share experiences with.”
