Press Release

Bass: “Communication and transparency are essential to a strong democracy. These applications allow me to hear directly from constituents about their needs and concerns for our district, and make it possible for me to give real-time updates about what’s happening in Washington D.C.”

Washington, DC – In an effort to create more accessibility and increase communication with constituents, Congresswoman Karen Bass has launched four new social media pages including a Facebook page, a Twitter feed, a YouTube channel, and a Flickr page.

“Communication and transparency are essential to a strong democracy,” said Congresswoman Karen Bass. “These applications allow me to hear directly from constituents about their needs and concerns for our district, and make it possible for me to give them real-time updates about what’s happening in Washington D.C.

“With so much happening so quickly in the Capitol, I want to use as many resources as I can to keep in touch with the people who sent me here. In the State Assembly, returning home from Sacramento was much easier than it will be from Washington, DC.  Social media is a great tool to connect with constituents and help inform the public.

“Although we have four new sites right now, we will be adding more in the near future and adapting our sites as the technology evolves.”
