New Steps to Expand Communication and Connectivity

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced that he is taking new steps to expand communication and connectivity with constituents in California's 29th Congressional District, including his participation in the Online All-Star Competition from June 7 until June 21.

"Online social networks like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube present an unprecedented opportunity for me to directly engage with my constituents," Rep. Schiff said. “For this reason, we are going beyond our weekly e-newsletter and Facebook efforts, and kicking off Twitter and other social media. I will also be participating in the Member Online All-Star Competition and hope we can engage an even greater number of my constituents online."  

Winners of the Online All-Stars will be selected based on the total new Facebook fans, Twitter followers and YouTube subscribers acquired during the two-week contest. To help Rep. Schiff in the competition, add him as a friend on Facebook:www.facebook.com/CongressmanSchiff; follow him on Twitter:http://Twitter.com/RepAdamSchiff; and subscribe to his YouTube channel:http://www.youtube.com/user/AdamSchiff.  

"I look forward to increasingly using my Facebook page, YouTube channel and new Twitter account to ensure Californians are kept abreast of the work I am doing in Congress," Rep. Schiff said. “I will be sending out updates via these new-media channels so my constituents can find the most up-to-date information, and share their thoughts with me in an even more timely way. Please join our efforts and let me know what you think!" 

Rep. Schiff also urges constituents to sign-up for his Washington Update e-Newsletter if they haven't already, which provides information on his work in Washington, DC. Constituents are able to sign-up for the e-Newsletter on Rep. Schiff's Web site:http://schiff.congressnewsletter.net/mail.
